    Great to see the progress of the VA getting closer to our communities. As a disabled Vietnam Vet living in Myrtle Beach SC, th e anticipated new clinic scheduled for groundbreaking this year has not been locally shared in the news or by VA. In any case we live in this great veteran community (for the most part) and not needing to do a four hour round trip to Ralph Johnson VA in Charleston will allow us to continue service earned care. The last thing myself and veterans that responded to our country’s call to duty is to be dumped onto Tricare or Medicaid. War and conflicts, noble or not, if America is willing to ask for that sacrifice of life & limb………keep your WORD!

    I would like to see a list of all the services of this facility and phone numbers for each. I currently travel to Pensacola for my care, but the travel time is fairly long.

    The VA is real good , by services to any verteran who is hurt , injured and bleeding at time of need.
    There are and always will be the ones how need the 30% percent of disability and are not getting there paid percentage whole . My personal service of both training and performance for my country has taken its toll to my body. Physicality , i have been denied fro all my acctions before , during and shortly after , times involved with my service time out.
    I am a veteran who has been on deployment twice and has the , “Honor separatedly ; ” with the personal attentions to take care of my own family members at home.
    Have applied for my owned disabilities of regular and additional body injurys . I now need help in which reasonly was sent a letter of denied. With the current events at hand i now can not continue to give support to my now family members with the house and place i signed for in California , USA. I know there are millions of soldiers with missing arms , legs and most who and not speck, hear and even see correctly. I am not asking of short and quick processing. I myself have been home since 2011. My tours happened 2003 to 2005. Second one Extended 2007 to 2011. Now with the lost of applied times , finally it was recognized i applied in 2017.

    VA:
    I am a service connected Purple Heart recipient from VN, when i moved here 13 years ago i signed into the Mobile Al. CBOC but moved my care to the Pensacola CBOC when it opened due to lack of support by the employee’s at the Mobile CBOC!

    I live in Fairhope and would like to switch my care back to the New Mobile Al. CBOC.

    Please advise on how I should proceed?

    Sincerely: Michael Kavanaugh
