BUREACYCRACY AND DISTRUST

By Dale R. Suiter STAFF WRITER

Working with Vets of different ages on an individual basis is rewarding. When a Vet “FINALLY” receives an entitlement or benefit it is a rewarding experience. Relief is a very common experience for Vets when the VA finally “kicks in”. Vets pay bills, get medical attention, go to college and obtain prescriptions buy a house and relax – or can they?

Often, following the granting of benefits Vets (and those that work to help them) develop an “over the shoulder” approach to life with the VA. There is an undercurrent of mistrust with the Vets I work with. I give in to it to. Why? Why do Vets not trust the one federal agency that many believe exists to improve the lives of very damaged military veterans? Forms, forms, forms and more forms.

Phone numbers, talk to machine after machine after machine after machine and on and on. For all those who work to help Vets – remember – it is all about the Vet and his or her family. Without individuals who work with Vets – many of them that do receive benefits would be destitute. Hang in there folks. When you (and the Vet) win one, sit back and enjoy the moment. They are not all that common.
