    Our Veterans deserve the best health care. If the needed care its outside the VA or the private hospital affiliated with it, then the VA should send the Vet to a hospital that specializes in the needed care.
    Many VA Hospitals are affiliated with a top class hospital. The VA Hospital in Manhattan is connected the NYU Medical Center ( rated in the top 5 Hospitals in the USA). Unfortunately, VA hospitals affiliated with lower rated Hospitals gain no advantage.

    Getting horribly disfigured by having his face burned off didn't slow JR Martinez down. Had he not had this horrible thing happen to him, he's be an auto mechanic in Riverside.
