Can Private Recruiters Save the Veteran’s Administration?

It’s Fall. You might not, however, recognize it in Louisiana. In a state where the leaves don’t turn and residents are unfamiliar with rain galoshes and snow tires, it’s just another hot day. Swimming pools are still in use, people are wearing shorts and men in the streets seek relief from a blazing sun.

Sadly, many of those darting from tree to tree in the noonday heat sport caps that say “VETERAN” or “POW/MIA.” Some remove shirts that advertise their particular war and others show obvious signs of combat. Looking weak in the heat, one is left to wonder if these men, many homeless, are aware of the growing controversy that engulfs the American Veteran’s Administration in this state and others.

In Louisiana, the head of Veteran’s Affairs, David LaCerte, just stepped down after a probe revealed that not only were there multiple abuses in procedure at nursing homes, but that there also existed no plan to correct problems when identified. Millions of dollars appear to have been mishandled and Louisiana now joins the line of states that have failed or taken advantage of this great nation’s fighting men.

Her black floral sheath was also marked by pink and blue patterns. Black lace could also be observed on the sleeves of her outfit.
