Seeking help with VA

In response to “Mistreated by VA” published July 6: The similarities are very much the same as my husband’s have been for the past 23 years.
My husband’s situation is a long, complicated and unresolved mess. I’ll give a short version: a back injury in training and three surgeries over a period of several years. Without divulging too much of my husband’s personal information, just recently he has contacted Sen. Pat Toomey’s office and has received a response. He has tried in the past contacting members of Congress to no avail.
We are praying that the right person will get hold of his information and take an interest to get his mess fixed.
I am sure letter writer Kevin Prokop and many other servicemen and women are tired of hearing “contact your congressman.” My husband and I are also tired of hearing this. The news does not encourage us either, with the reports of backlog, paperwork, cutbacks etc., in the Veterans Affairs Department.
Still, I still strongly urge Prokop and other service members to contact their congressman. Maybe just the right person will show interest and notice a big problem — and get it resolved.
