The article focuses on the geriatric problems faced by members of the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA). It is stated that nearly 20,000 members of the PVA, mostly belonging to the Vietnam-era and many turning 80 soon, would have to fend for themselves as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, may not be prepared to meet all their geriatric problems. The author suggests that unless the government addresses the problem soon, it could lead to a medical crisis.
