VA does fine job

Published: Wednesday, July 9, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

My heart saddens after reading negative media reports about Veterans Administration hospitals and their ineffective care to veterans. I have had nothing but a positive experience.

My husband is a veteran who has received treatment from VA hospitals dating back 20 years. Currently, he is undergoing treatment at the VA hospitals in North Chicago and Milwaukee. I just wanted to take a moment to commend the medical personnel at the VA hospitals for their service. From every phone call to complex treatment, he has received efficient and exceptional care.

I just wanted the public to know that the VA does do its job.
