The Burn Pit Registry isn't just a listing it provides Veterans long term follow up for any conditions they have or could emerge down the road. It allows VA to identify conditions for all Veterans more quickly to make sure that Veterans get the health care that they need in a timely manner. #BurnPitRegistry
If you have experienced respiratory symptoms or health conditions that may be related to exposure to burn pits while deployed, you should register in the Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry.

Have you ever wondered about the difference between conventional versus organic products? You may also see labels such as “free-range” chicken, “cage-free” eggs or “natural, grass-fed” beef and wonder what these terms mean. Knowledge is power - to help get a better understanding of these terms and organic processes, click the link below from the United States Department of Agriculture. #VANutrition https://www.ams.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media/What%20is%20Organic.pdf

In 1991 Veteran John Paul began receiving care for his PTSD at VA. His story is inspiring, and the kind of care we want all Veterans to receive whether at VA or outside.
SEMINOLE — On May 10, 1967, U.S. Marine Corps infantryman John Paul was seriously wounded during a battle in South Vietnam's A Shau Valley near the North Vietnamese border.

In 1980, James Stevens realized his lifelong dream of becoming a U.S. Marine. After two years of exemplary service, he was involved in a serious accident that resulted in a severe traumatic brain injury and a host of other medical issues. For years, doctors urged his family to pursue institutionalized care, but they refused. They knew that his best chance of recovery would come from care in the home with them - his primary caregivers. In 2012, James was enrolled for care at Bay Pines and entered the Home Based Primary Care program. Today, all of his care is delivered in the home which has made a positive impact on his health and also the well-being of his family.

Did you know that Veterans are at increased risk for hepatitis C? VA recommends testing if you were born between 1945-65 or have other hepatitis C risk factors. Get the facts. Get tested. Get treatment. #HepAware http://go.usa.gov/ctMxz

“I thought their chronic pain program was a bunch of crap,” said 37-year-old Miranda McClurg, a Marine Corps Veteran. “I didn’t want to do it. I wasn’t a believer. But once I got into the program I realized they weren’t trying to take my pain meds away. They just want to make sure I’m taking them safely.” http://1.usa.gov/1UfIfYT

I would like to comment on the Hunter Holmes Mcguire VA Hospital in Richmond , Virginia .
I HAVE The Best Doctor that I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE in the Green Clinic , Dr. Silva !! Who I believe is A
GREAT Example of what a PHYSICIAN SHOULD BE &
IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF A FINE , COMPASSIONATE , UNDERSTANDING DOCTOR !!!
DR. SILVA is VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE of my medical history & my current stasis ! I have a blood test before my appointment with her , so she can see if I'am doing what I'am suppose to be .
Dr. SILVA will not hesitate to give me a GOOD BUTT CHEWING if I'am not doing what I'am suppose to be !!
TO ME , THIS IS CARING ABOUT ME , NOT BEING NASTY ON HER PART !!!
TO ME , I FEEL HONORED TO HAVE HER AS MY DOCTOR & BELIEVE THAT THE HUNTER HOLMES MCGUIRE VA MEDICAL CENTER SHOULD SHOW HER THE RECOGNITION THAT SHE MOST CERTAINLY DESERVES !!!!
Sincerely , Leonard Lee Lantz

A family united by their service to their country. Hear how Chaunte, a United States Air Force #Veteran, took a #Step4ward and was able to overcome challenges while transitioning from service.
