“The Nation which forgets its Defenders Will Itself Be Forgotten”

(Author unknown)

Being the son of a US Army veteran and a veteran myself of the US Air Force, I am humbled every time I visit the Veterans Administration Clinic located at Baldwin Park in Orlando Florida. Walking the halls and talking with veterans of every age imaginable you cannot but feel the pride that these men and women have for our Nation as they tell their stories. There is this bond that exist between those who have served in the defense of this Country which crosses every War, declared or not.

To hear of the nightmares that these Defenders of Our Nation have had to endure in the treatment of their injuries, illnesses and diseases is beyond belief. So that there is no misunderstanding, in regards to the medical treatment which I have received by the Doctors and staff at the Baldwin Park VA, I can offer nothing but my gratitude and praise.

Unfortunately that is not the case for so many of these Veterans. It is because of the lack of care by certain individuals working within the Veterans Administration that I have decided to provide a format in which these men and women can share their stories and expose those within the Veterans Administration who have failed to care for our Defenders in their hour of need.

We at welcome your stories and it is our hope that together we can restore integrity to the Veterans Administration.
