This is Infuriating

Everyone should read this Wall Street Journal op-ed by the wife of a veteran blinded in Iraq. Tiffany Smiley recounts the humiliating incompetence that she and her husband Scotty Smiley repeatedly experienced when dealing with the VA. Our troops make incredible sacrifices for this country and then are thrown into the maw of an ossified bureaucracy that wouldn’t be tolerated in pretty much any other area of American life. It is wrong, perverse, and wholly infuriating.
