VA Secretary McDonald Orders Medical Care for C-123 Veterans!

Exercising his great authority on April 14, VA Secretary Bob McDonald ordered Veterans Benefits Administration and Veterans Health Administration to provide VA medical care to eligible C-123 veterans!

It is a victory for the Department of Veterans Affairs, with key players who've stood up for us also victorious: Allison Hickey, Linda Schwartz, the Secretary and others. VA succeeded in its mission with Secretary McDonald's message, and now those VA hospital doors are unlocked at last.

Good job, VA! While we have absolutely no idea how his orders will be implemented nor how long VHA expects to delay to get itself organized, this is wonderful news and shows the leadership we'd been hoping for.
