I have been a patient at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center for many years. I have always gotten excellent care. I am proud to call the VA my health care center! The VA has funding issues and a staff shortage (none of which is the fault of the VA itself). The influx of soldiers from Afghanistan and the War on Terror has severely stressed the staff but I have always been greeted with a smile and "will do" attitude. Talk of disbanding the VA and sending veterans out with vouchers for care has me worried sick. The VA is my rock and my salvation. Please stand with me to keep this valuable institution intact!
