The department that’s supposed to help veterans is making them worse.
An independent study from 2019 found that the process of going to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs for help could actually be harming the health and wellbeing of our returned servicemen and women. The Department is not functioning. It’s delaying and dithering while veterans are dying. There have been countless reports into what needs to happen to fix the department, but government after government keeps tinkering with things at the edges without engaging with the harsh truth – the department is not fit for purpose. It needs a clear-out.
