To the editor:
To any veteran who has had inadequate care, I pray that will never happen again. But the media report gives the impression all VAs are not doing their job. That simply is not true, and I believe the city of Fort Dodge has one of the best VA facilities in the state - could be the nation. My husband was a patient for a number of years, and the last two years of his life, a VA patient many times. He was always treated with respect and dignity, and the care was the best. Even when he was very ill, he would look forward to his appointments because he was greeted with a smile and kind word. I again give a huge "thank you" to each and every one. You all have a special caring gift. The city of Fort Dodge and surrounding areas should be happy and grateful they have such a wonderful VA so close.
