Re: Health care through VA Facilities
RP - Great post on your item #1....I too am amazed when people think the military hospitals are VA hospitals and vice versa.
Military members typically are not eligible for VA care (they are still servicemembers - not veterans yet) except in RARE cases (stationed in remote areas - with no base nearby - often the case with recruiters)
There is often a huge difference in the care provided - the military is looking to keep the troops healthy and reassembled - and the VA is busy keeping us running after the military mashes us up!
Like I said earlier, my military and VA healthcare has been pretty da#n good so far!
