I was in the army for a long time. I've had tri-care and I've seen the VA hospitals.
There is no way the VA system can come close to civilian medicine, I'm sorry to those guys who love it but ill keep my civilian doctors and private insurance. I can see a specialist on Monday if I want. Government healthcare is for the birds. This isn't really the place to discuss this, but if any doctors ever ask about firearm ownership, I'll post it.
