Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Veterans Affairs not always supportive

I read Mr. Ross Mitchell’s letter to the editor (Nov. 15) with regards to the support he receives from Veterans Affairs.

Not knowing the entire story behind Mr. Mitchell’s memory concerns, I still must support him in his actions. I have found that Veterans Affairs does not always support the men and women they are hired to support.

Veterans need an explanation on why a negative decision was made on their needs/requests and not just because the symptoms are not bad enough, yet.

And look at quality of life for these people. Remember these Canadians answered the call of their country and the world with nothing more than a wish to help out and an expectation of support from their country and the citizens who send them in harm’s way.

Would allowing Mr. Mitchell the medication his doctor prescribes help his memory? I hope so but it might not.

Veterans Affairs, please take the chance and support this Canadian hero because he made a difference.
