    I still don’t see a response as to when the app will be available for Android. Is there going to be an app made available for us with Android devices?

  2. Teresa K Mohler

    I have to agree with the earlier comments; please fix or update the app… this seems like an awesome idea, so let’s get it working. Semper Fi

    The site states it’s only available for Apple phone, which most vets can’t afford them or want them. This app should be available to all veterans especially since the is suppose to provide critical information to veterans. Very disappointed in the app!

    And if you don’t have a cell phone? How do you access this?

    My teeth hurt all the time now. Many I can wiggle easily. I don’t have any money or insurance and am finding it more and more difficult to eat. I’m looking for suggestions. Mark.

      I believe if your VA primary doctor believes your dental issues adversely effects your health; he can refer you to the VA dental department for needed help. I have the same issue and have asked my doctor to do this. I have not received an answer yet.

    I was really happy to see president Donald J. Trump helping veterans on the 75th Amvets convention in Louisville, Kentucky. He also took another step by giving $25,000 to each veteran student toward their loans. Today the lives of veterans have improved drastically from the last 10 to 15 years. Veteran homelessness was much more common then than it is now. At Lucky’s Minimart Bristol, CT we served free coffee for veterans, seniors and the homeless every Friday for 7 years until our business was forcefully shut down. We The People Party of Connecticut would like to request that any child born in America shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to get higher education because of the student loans crisis, this issue must be resolved. These children are America’s new generation, they are our future and the veterans and seniors are our assets.

    God Bless America

    This man must be well into his 80s, as a Korean War Veteran and that is absolutely awesome and commendable. I did my best to get into the military during the Korean War, but I was under age. I managed to join the U.S. Army in November 1954, but prisoners were being exchanged, and the war was observing a truce at that time. Long after, my active duty days were over, I was injured in a MVA and sustained an L1-T12 incomplete injury. I took some gait therapy, utilizing full leg braces and was able to ambulate on a tile floor, even going up four steps and down the other side… but could not power through short grass, outdoors. I have utilized a manual wheelchair for the past 38 years. I played wheelchair basketball, softball, tennis, handcycle and I mono-ski. I am 81 years old, in great shape, for the age and totally surprised that an octogenarian was chosen to participate.

    Where do I sign up? I receive my healthcare from the SCI Unit, Dallas VAMC
