        Mike D:: "Mr. Browning" is a female. SHE isn't the only person at the vet center who could help you. There is a Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) person there five days a week-- unless he has to take time off-- who could help you. There are benefits people at the DAV who could help you-- and you wouldn't have to stand in line. The veterans organizations have service officers.

        Mr. Browning, I would like to thank you for your service to us fellow vets. But I believe the critism is with the Vet Office and not you. I too am a disabled vet and went to the center to get the paperwork to apply for changes to my disabilities. I was told I had to be one of the first 10 to show up to be serviced by you. I am unable to stand for more than 15 minutes, let alone the hour and a half in order to be one of the first in line. I asked the clerks at least for the forms so I could fill them out myself and they refused and said I had to go thru you. I have been told you are great at what you do, but the way the system is set up is not conducive for some of us and where is the actual VA Employee that is responsible for these actions.

        Mamma Griz, my post is not about the VA Center it’s about liberals; you people tell us how intolerant you are but your posts shows how bitter and hatful you are. Those are some of the reasons you want to take away our rights and liberties.

        Dr. Strangeguy:: What do you mean "no facts"? I bet I know more facts about the going ons at the vet center than you do! And it is YOU that is the hateful one. I know how to get to the vet center for one thing. But I know what it looks like once I walk in the door.

        HA! Don’t take life too serious Bubba—you see she proved my point these liberals are all about hate—just another insult. Typical liberal response no facts so attack the person.

        There is no need for Mama Griz to apologize to me I understand that’s the way Obama supporters are.
