BREAKING: V.A. Being SUED After Vet DIES Waiting 10 HOURS For Life Saving Surgery… Look Which State Let This Happen!

Michael Cantrell AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Our veterans are exceptional people who deserve the highest honor and respect we can bestow upon them as they embody the characteristics and traits that have made America the greatest nation on earth.

These individuals signed up to put their lives in danger to protect our freedom and liberty, to defend our way of life, our culture, from the many enemies around the world who despise us and want to destroy what we have.

This fact is what makes it so heinous to see the brave men and women who serve our country get treated like garbage by their government, not receiving the high quality health care they deserve.

The Veteran’s Administration has been found to be a cess pool that has allowed many of those who have served in the military to go without the care they desperately need, causing some to die needlessly.

The latest example of this comes to us in the person of George Walker, 75, of Tacoma, Florida, who died in 2016 after waiting for hours to receive life saving surgery.

Fox News has the details:

George Walker, 75, of Tacoma, died in 2016 while on a surgical wait list for a new heart valve at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System, according to his widow’s lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Tacoma.

“They never told us how serious it was,” Peggy Walker told the Tacoma News Tribune, referring to the VA health-care system. “If we didn’t think we were going to get the right care there, we would have gone somewhere else. He was just a happy man who didn’t know.”

Her lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount in damages.

The VA Puget Sound issued a statement, saying that while it “does not typically comment on pending litigation, VA Puget Sound’s wait times at both our Seattle and Tacoma locations are better, on average, than local non-VA hospitals as we are continually striving to improve our service and efficiency,” the paper reported.

That statement also said that it “mourns the loss of every veteran.”

According to Walker’s obituary, he signed up for the Air Force and served eight years in Korea and Vietnam. He was a decorated war hero who was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal in 1967.

It was during the early months of summer — June 2016 to be precise — when he began experiencing shortness of breath. He went to a VA Puget Sound clinic, then on to a hospital, where he received a diagnosis of aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the aortic valve, usually hereditary in nature.

The hospital then discharged him after putting him on a waiting list for a new valve. He later learned he would not receive the new valve until July 5. He died July 1.

Jessica Holman Duthie, attorney for Walker’s wife, stated the hospital “absolutely shouldn’t have sent him home.”

The report goes on to mention that back in 2014, Congress blamed the VA for absurdly long wait times for treatment after they discovered documents at the Phoenix facility had been altered to conceal the fact patients waited lengthy periods of time to see a medical professional.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
