2 years in the life of a veteran in need

This blog represents a period in time, covering about 2 years of my life at the State of Michigan ran Home for Veterans.

It chronicles the slow decay of level of care, and quality of life offered to veterans who found themselves living at this location.

Some had hopes of leaving, others dream of it, many are slowly accepting their dismal fate of that place being their last home.

I think it clearly shows that although Federal tax dollars are used to support the facility, the fact that Michigans dismal economy has caused the home to have to make cuts to programs and quality of life care. And that the administration of the facility is not caring properly for those veterans, and is not living up to the mission statement of the facility. 

As you take time to read thru the archives, remember, this is what has happened at this place. And know this: the staff has always had the opportunity to respond, and so far they refused to or fail to.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the picture of Grand Rapids Home for Veterans, is one that says  Michigan no longer truly cares for its veterans.

And as each day goes by without newer reports being filed here, remember that the Abuse of the Veterans continues.  And that Michigan's Guardian laws, allow guardians to continue their abuse our veterans and their destroying them financially. 

You be the judge.

See you in the next life.
