Gen (R) Shinseki, Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs, wrote this in his Strategic Plan for Veteran’s Affairs:
“Since my first day in office, my overriding challenge has been to fulfill President Obama’s charter to transform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) into a high-performing 21st century organization focused on our Nation’s Veterans as its clients. President Obama is fully committed to the vision of a transformed VA to better serve Veterans. His strong leadership, support, and full commitment is clearly evident in the FY2011 President’s Budget request. The 21st century VA will be built around three guiding principles: We will be people-centric, results-driven and forward-looking. VA will be an advocate for its clients—the Veterans we serve, their families, their loved ones, and their caregivers. VA will anticipate the needs of Veterans, and be proactive in meeting those needs.”
Vets like you need to be taken care of by the VA.
The VA has recently built enormous medical complexes in Las Vegas, NV and Orlando, FL. The VA is also creating a mega-medical campus in New Orleans for the Vets in Louisiana.
The Vets of Kentucky deserve the same opportunity to a world-class medical treatment center.
The VA’s best practices model for the last 3 new VA medical projects have been campus-type models. In both Orlando and Las Vegas, the campus model has included not only a 130+ bed hospital, but also and outpatient clinic, a 120 bed nursing home, rehab center, regional Veteran offices, and wonderful green spaces for the Veterans and their family members to enjoy. All of these buildings have been built on between 65 and 150 acres for costs of between $650 million and nearly $1 billion dollars.

Our Kentucky Veterans deserve the same VA medical complexes.
With appreciation and encouragement,
