Vail Daily letter: Privatize VA health care

Our president has recently indicated that the VA health care system should not be privatized. I am a veteran with service-connected injuries and disabilities and my association with the VA is personal.

It is a mess and needs to be privatized or at least pared down to scale that is manageable. We have enough private healthcare available without another whole system, which I have found to be more management than actual care. By the way, this is nothing new. The VA has been problematic for 40-plus years via my experiences.
