    I do not know your situation for your grandfather, however there are a ton of people over here using VA benefits and there is also companies who specialize in VA claims and getting people into the system. I have Aetna through my past employment but I am a veteran, I have the paperwork to apply and I researched and got my DD-214 from the service I had by sending information to the government. I hope it helps, they also have a local clinic in Minden which is just a few miles away from me here in Gardnerville. I do know that California is having major problems with their system due to funding......Jetspray

    Very cool to read that, same thing kind of drove me over here to follow my kids and their families. I have never looked back, and I enjoy all of my friends I have made here. This state too is driven by the crazy politicians and their ideas of good times......Jetspray

    Things he “promised”
    • ⁠Wall? Nope.
    • ⁠Defeat ISIS? Nope?
    • ⁠Replace Obamacare? Nope.
    • ⁠Beat China in a trade war? Nope.
    • ⁠Bring manufacturing back to America? Nope.
    • ⁠Tax cuts for the middle class? Nope.
    • ⁠Drain the Swamp? Nope.
    He’s let the russians and turks take control of Syria, alienating kurd allies, let Iran take over Iraq, alienating iraqi allies. And he’s supporting the Saudi's who actually sheltered the 9-11 hijackers. In all his years he’s reduced US influence in the entire region to a rubble. While his natural opponents are having a field day. He couldnt just find the wargraves of US soldiers who fought for the last 20 years and piss on them directly?

    Let’s take stock of the number of presidential aides and associates who’ve faced felony charges:
    * Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, has been convinced on multiple counts.
    * Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and business associate, is in prison.
    * Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, is in prison.
    * Rick Gates, Trump’s former campaign vice chairman, has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
    * Michael Flynn, Trump’s former White House national security advisor, has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
    * George Papadopoulos, Trump’s former campaign advisor on foreign policy, has already served his prison sentence.
    * Alex van der Zwaan, a lawyer who worked with Manafort and Gates. has already served his prison sentence.

    Re: How crazy is this getting?

    I always wonder how much people travel and live these days, and where they go and what they see. I lived in Germany from 1970 to 1973, working for and in the Army Security Agency, and traveled to Iran in 1972 for a 21 day TDY job in Tehran at the embassy there. The takeover took place in 1979. Views written by others are much like Stalin would say as he could convict any person for any reason with propaganda behind his words, and same with Hitler and Mao...…..Jetspray
