• Vietnam Vet Receives VA Doctor’s Appointment Two Years After His Death

    Vietnam veteran Douglas Chase died of a brain tumor after waiting four months to receive medical treatment from a Veterans Affairs hospital.

    And 22 months after his passing, the VA sent a letter to Douglas’ widow, Suzanne Chase, offering a doctor’s appointment.

    “It was 22 months too late,” an upset Chase said. “I kind of thought I was in the twilight zone when I opened this letter and read it.”

    Chase said she had applied for VA funeral benefits in 2012 and was rejected. So it came as a compete surprise to her when the VA sent out the doctor’s appointment letter.

    The VA’s response to the letter was, “Oh, dear.”

    The VA has since sent another letter stating that they “apologize for our error and any difficulties this has caused you” and “are reviewing this Veteran’s case.”
