Reform VA care for veterans to reduce suicides and shootings

In light of the recent tragedy at Fort Hood in Texas, Derrick Grayson is renewing his ongoing concern for America's veterans. "We need to honor our promises to our service members," read a press release from Grayson's office "No service member should come home damaged and fight for treatment, sometimes for years."

Grayson expressed his concern for the number of recent suicides at Ft. Hood: 22 in 2010, 10 in 2011 and 19 in 2012, claiming that the high rates are completely unacceptable. Grayson suggested that reform of the Department of Veterans Affairs--especially the way it handles the medical records of military members--could offer a solution to the problems that cause shootings such as this one. "Veterans' biggest complaint was it could take years to get the care they needed," he said. "VA records need to be computerized. Remove the adversarial review board that routinely denies care after service benefits. Give veterans priority in transitional services. I will fight for our veterans."
