Customer Question
The VA in Jackson,Mississippi...

The VA in Jackson,Mississippi, has helped me, but they are giving me the run around on helping me with the problem I have with my legs. They overlooked the cancer I had back in December last year. They finally caught it in April. I am 100% disabled , because of Agent Orange. We have made 3 or 4 trips up there for my legs and it is always a different doctor I see. One doctor told me if he got cleared by the heart and cancer doctor he could do the procedure. Well now the last doctor told me that he wanted to wait until I see in January. Could you please help me.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Mississippi

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

It is all on my records at the VA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
