On the record...One so ill suffers without knowledge of PTS problems. All is known is "I don't know what is wrong with me, what's happening", and then come the tears, or the drinking. Anything to feel good. It does not happen until you get proper treatment. This could take what seems like forever if you cannot seem to get through the fear.

 

Every veteran is
not told, on the record
which they should know.

"Do you want your visit
on the record?" A doctor
might ask.

Of course you do! How will
 Veteran Adminestration know
you were injured on active duty.

You Go, President Obama!
Change that regulaton on time
Took seventeen years 'til I got mine.

Too many Veterans out on
the street, 'cause they did'nt
know how to beat not being on the record. 
It takes patience from God.

Thank you President Obama!
Yet, I plea you consider backing
 up to the time of discharge.

R E T R O A C T I V E !
I thank God for the time He gives me 
to leave this legacy for my young relatives.

GLAD THAT A 'VETERAN' HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO SAY SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT, WHO CAME INTO A HOUSE THAT WAS 'TORE DOWN' FROM THE CEILING TO THE FLOOR. HE HAD A WHOLE LOTTA 'MESS' TO CLEAN UP AND AS FAR AS I CAN SEE...HE IS DOING HIS JOB...AND DOING IT WELL!!! THANKS FOR SHARING, LOUISA AND GOD BLESS YOU, LOVE,

Like Tony, I also no longer go to the VA for any of my medical needs. When I did go, I was wrongly diagnosed and it nearly killed me. They fall far short of the quality of care of civilian doctors. THAT is what really needs to be addressed by Mr. Obama. Still, this was well said, Louisa. God bless.

I've not followed what Mr. Obama has done for Vets of late, but I hope he does something worthy of his position...e

I am a veteran who never uses any if there are VA benefits. I at one time went to the VA hospital but I found besides disrespect from the civil workers, the doctors were all foreign educated. In one incident the wrong medicine was prescribed for me. So I do not know what Obama has done to right the wrongs of our veterans, ButIMHO the politics are anti-veteran.
Thank You for sharing this well crafted writing. As it will bring much discussion.

GOD BLESS YOU
