Department of Veterans Affairs is failing veterans

Just writing to remind readers why 22 American veterans kill themselves every day in a formerly progressive nation.

It was discovered awhile ago that institutions that practiced “separate but equal” policies were illegal and discriminatory. As a result, many institutions were no longer allowed to discriminate in that fashion. I am writing so that readers can understand why institutions that obeyed the new law progressed and flourished. It is important to note that ignoring federal laws designed to create equality among a variety of races, genders, ages, sexes, etc., may be the main reason that the Department of Veterans Affairs is best known for wrongful death, incompetence and nepotism instead of health care or modernity. Our tax dollars at work!
