cyber warfare stops when somebody cuts the power supply; keep watching that cyber screen while they knock out the generator?  Star Wars the movie is 35 years old and do not protect our power supplies any better than we did years ago; stop by any public commercial plant and even a simple SPOT report would scare you in a real combat environment or terrorist event?  We should focus or old fashion physical security first.

please start with firing the people in claims processing. there is ZERO reason why it should take 18+ months to process a claim. the majority of Vets would tell you once you get past the paperwork and into the system the quality of care is acceptable, just getting through the process is the major cause of frustration.
