    The Army and military as a whole should accept this same responsibility on intimidation and retaliation at all levels from DoD down to the independent services. The VA as Veterans learned from he best, DoD with the previous 4-star general at the head. When an individual in the military tries to elevate a problem or abuse, it doesn't go very far before the chain-of-command thwarts the efforts with direct orders or other direct involvement.

    This is a good start but why major administrators had to doctor the books is more important.

    I suspect contractors embezzling funds thorough legislation mandated contractor payments on no bid awards are the root of the loss of VA funds. The ALEC crime ring in Washington DC is behind many billions of dollars lost to embezzling and kickback payments to ALEC by contractors being awarded the no bid contracts. The VA must follow the money now and let it lead them to embezzling administrators and contractors. The GOP and DEMs throwing money at this problems and using Medicare and medicaid money to supplement VA fraud is a band aid that the vets do not want.

    There is very likely that states will demand the medical records of confidential military information they should not be given to state governments and public information agency's. I don't think military records should become the property of the states and its a dangerous threat to privacy acts of 1974 which states are violating with confiscated medical and personal records of individuals.
