Knee Braces and the VA
« on: 03 Aug 2017 - 20:42:30 »
I've been trying to get the VA to get me some good knee braces for a long time. Since I've gotten nowhere, I made a GoFundMe to see if I could get my own. I have been cussed out so many times because of this campaign. Sometimes I just feel like quitting. Oh! And my battery crapped out on me so that's $150 I didn't have to spend gone. I've had a rough week, guys.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

Have you contacted your local U.S. Congressman's office?  Service officer at American Legion?  I think the VA now had a patient advocacy person.  Link to Go Fund Me page?

I've talked to the patient advocate, they told me who to call and they still haven't helped me. Here's the GFM link https://www.gofundme.com/4700ofk

Call your Congressional Rep.  They can build a fire.

If you need a second magazine its time to call in air support.

I came into this world kicking, screaming, covered in someone else's blood. I certainly don't mind leaving the same way
