First you have a total hip replacement, and everything gets worse. Disability records show it. You still have the left hip and both knees to do. You get 100 percent disability from the Veterans Administration.
You buy a house, get an electric wheelchair and a 30-foot ramp on your house.
Then the V.A. takes away your 100 percent disability and drops you to 70 percent, even though it’s been proven to be service-connected.
From then on, you struggle to make ends meet.
You can’t get food stamps because you are $80 over the threshold. You can’t refinance your house because you are $300 under the limit the V.A. says you have to have as income.
And the government wonders why veterans are going crazy. Look at the way we’re treated.
God bless all veterans and best of luck.
