I hope that one day a veteran can walk into any VA hospital or health care facility and be given options for any affliction that they're facing without being put on a waiting list. The government needs to help veterans get access to health care that they deserve.
I am doing this so that the public can witness the trauma that follows war. Witness. Because this trauma is as much yours as it is ours. Witness and own it. Witnessing breaks the isolation trauma creates. Witnessing furthers the healing of individuals and of our society.
I'm proud to live in America, and I love the fact that brave men and women support the military efforts of this country by keeping us safe. They should also be offered the proper health care and employment opportunities to get back onto their feet.
