The article focuses on the paralyzed veterans, their obstacles and challenges. The majority of PVA members were told by doctors that they would never walk again, that they would be confined to a wheelchair until their dying day. What they did not prepare for are the many life challenges they would have to face on a daily basis. Why veterans without service-connected disabilities or very poor should not be paid for a portion of their care. These are not second-class veterans. These veterans shed blood, tears and emotions and some have nightmares to this day.
