    VA Veterans not new just hidden since the 1990's

    The VA scandal is not new. I knew there was an issue in 1991, when my dad was suppose to be scheduled for stent s for blocked coronary arteries. It never happened. He went to the VA-ER in Cleveland Ohio Oct 18 1991 for c/o chest pain, they set him home without running any test, and said it was indigestion. Less than 8hrs later he was dead. Died of a massive MI. I understand and know the hurt these families have gone through because I lived it maybe if I had shared my story years ago, some people could still be alive. This is very tragic and leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth. All individuals who are in administrative positions who have allowed this to go on and cover up what has been going on should be fired immediately
