That is how long it took the VA at American Lakes in Lakewood, WA. to give me a call. Just got an email, from the good folks in Puyallup WA. that was giving us free room and board, while we waited for this call, saying the VA called. NOW mind you, that referral was submitted on MAY 01, 2019 for coronary rehab. We waited for 3 weeks in Puyallup WA. for that call and made another trip to the Cardiologist in Seattle before we gave up and returned home on May 25. I'm wondering if our plans of returning to the US for BETTER VA HEALTH CARE was nothing more than wishful thinking. I thought that my war was over in Jan. 1967. I was so young, stupid and still not done growing at 18. Thank you America for a life time of war with the V.A. HEALTH CARE SYSTEN! Here is the email I just got from Roger; Veronica got a call from the VA for you (3:51 pm Wednesday 6 June) Thursday, June 6, 2019 9:29 AM Caller: female (Sherri) works for the VA Community Care section at the American Lake VA in Lakewood, WA.
