I am a disabled veteran rated at 100% permanent and total. Broken back, neck and lost most of my hearing. I go to the VA Hospital here in Fresno. I am grateful for it.
But now I am informed that they will no longer give me enough hearing-aid batteries to last me. The VA has calculated that we veterans with hearing loss are only to use our hearing aids for 10 hours per day. Yes that’s right, only 10 hours per day or we will have to buy our own batteries.
We are being issued hearing aids that eat up batteries every couple of days and we are being short-changed again. Under President Obama, the veterans are not getting the care that we deserve or was promised. If this were not so, you would not be seeing TV commercials like Wounded Warriors and others that have been coming to the rescue of veterans.
Never miss a local story.
