Something Good About My Vamc

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My VAMC here in Bath NY got a very good report from the VA OIG recently during an inspection of this facility.

This is not a large VAMC but does have a DOM and a CLC .

It has changed a lot in the past 20 years and probably still gets an annual award for being the cleanest VAMC in the USA.

The complex surrounds a lawn area with many benches and is always well manicured and there is also a green house and a rose garden.

I was a patient there overnight once and felt the treatment I got was superb.

I never hear complaints from vets when I am there ...anymore....I used to long ago.

I went to the POW MIA service there 2 weeks ago. 8 former POWS and their families got a fabulous prime rib meal first and one of them briefly spoke about his captivity. He was 94 YEARS OLD! He volunteers to speak at the local schools on his experiences in the Army and as a POW.

PS the vet PTs can fish there as well ,as the Cohocton River runs along the north side of this VA complex and they can use live bait. They can barbeque the fish (usually trout) at the complex picnic area too.

I fish down the end of my road, in the very same river, but DEC rules say I have to use artificial lures and spinners where I fish.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
