This is personal for me, two of my relatives paid the ultimate sacrifice while receiving poor healthcare treatment at the Atlanta VA.

On August 13, 2015, my uncle passed away after a botched routine procedure at the Atlanta VA hospital, he was only 56 years young!! My father, a Vietnam Vet, passed away in early 2011 from complications of COPD. He was placed on an extended waiting list for a follow-on appointment, which never happened, he died between appointments. In the interim, he was never offered treatment medication for his symptoms.
The Atlanta VA is located in the 5th District, Congressman John Lewis' congressional district!!
