Veterans, sign up for health care

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I’ve repeated this many times, but here goes again: The best health care I have ever received in my 61 years is through the Veterans Health Care system.

Please U.S. military veterans – especially those who are without health care insurance – contact the Veterans Administration to determine your eligibility, and then get enrolled.

It’s simple, and you can get started on line by going to this link. And if you’re not computer savvy, have one of your kids or a friend help you who is.

Nearly 50 million Americans go without health care

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

LOMA LINDA, CA – Nearly 50 million Americans go without health care. I’m not one of them.

I am a U.S. Marine Corps veteran (1967 – 1971). Those four years of service entitles me to the best health care I have received in my 61 years: veterans administration health care benefits.

I count my blessings every time I see my doctor.

I’m sure my father-in-law Ken McAuley agrees. This morning at 5:30 I drove Ken, a retired Army veteran, who served in both the Korean and Vietnam wars to the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center in Loma Linda. There Ken received cataract surgery on his left eye.

Nearly 50 million Americans go without health care. Ken McAuley isn’t one of them.

When we arrived at the nurses’ station, we were greeted with a friendly smile and a warm “good morning.” Ten minutes later Ken and about ten other veterans were assigned to individual rooms where they would meet with their doctors and surgical teams.

Nearly 50 million Americans go without heath care. I know of at least ten veterans who have some of the best health care in the world.
