Thread Name: BS: News on VA?
Subject: RE: BS: News on VA?
I heard a story a while back about a vet who went to the VA years ago (after he was out of service) for 90 bucks to meet the rent. Just a loan. They sent him to the Red Cross, who helped him out and told him to forget about repayment. 30 years later he discovered the Red Cross was his 'guardian'. So watch those folks.

Didn't Bush and Congress just declare all vets over 65 will now have to rely on Medicare for health issues. That's WW2 and Korean War age. No VA benefits...just straight coverage like all other Americans under Medicare and Medicaid? Didn't read all the posts here, so maybe that was mentioned. Seems like a low blow, in my opinion...to not deliver on the promised.
