When the US Dept of Veteran Affairs (VA) makes a mistake in delivering your health care to you, their first response to that error is to lie about what happened and try to cover their own ass…….
During the latter part of the MIDDLE AGES in Europe, there was a special class of warriors called KNIGHTS. A warrior had to earn the right to be a knight, it was not an inherited title. The knights were considered part of the nobility, and knights were given special privileges in society. In return for these special noble privileges, the knights were held to a much higher STANDARD of KNIGHTLY CONDUCT than were ordinary citizens or even other members of the nobility. Under their code of conduct, knights were required to protect the weak and helpless, to never act selfishly and to blend mercy with justice. Because of this knightly code of conduct, people trusted knights and looked to them to deliver justice. Knights were an important part of society, and the legal system of that time depended on their honorable conduct.
We STILL have knights in America today………………………………………
I did not finish high school and have no college. But, I am an enlisted Vietnam vet, and my good friend Ben Krause, a smart and learned man, tells me he values the input of enlisted Vietnam vets. So, today I will share my opinions about the VA’s proposed rule changes for informal claims. And, opinions are what I have, nothing more. Research and scholarship are Ben’s department. I am just an old soldier who has paid my dues, and who feels entitled to shoot off my mouth about the VA.
