The author reflects on the policy of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in which it charges service-connected veterans' insurance companies. He notes that no VA doctor sees him for his service-connected disability but only for his spinal-cord injury (SCI) which relates to his visit at VA in Huntington in West Virginia to see his primary-care team doctor. Further, he also looks forward to the 29th National Veterans Wheelchair Games to see his fellows.
