I think I have a new Job. I work for the VA in Muskogee and have been in the kitchen the past 12 years. Well I applied for a driver position and was selected.

I will be driving a Van and going at to Veterans houses, picking them up and taking them to either the Hospital or to any one our clinics.

Heck I may even have to pick Kenny up and take him. LOL

I will probably be working out of Tulsa, we have a lot of patients on the NorthSide.

I don't have a start date yet.

First, I want to thank you for helping our Vets. I know it's a paying position, but it takes the right person to work in any medical profession, let alone one where some of the injuries are received protecting our liberties. Tell every one of them I said "Thanks".

Secondly, congrats. New job sounds like a great change of pace. Doing all that driving, we expect you to be on the watch for GT's in the weeds too. :laughingteeth:

The biggest problem will be driving in North Tulsa, that is where all the crime is. But it has to be done. Many of our Vets don't have any other health care. We have 3 clinics now plus the main Hospital, and with 2 wars at the same time, we offer the only help many of these people get.

Being a veteran I want to thank you for the work you do. When I go to the VA Clinic in Temple, TX. it always amazes me how nice all the employees are. They all greet you with a "good morning sir" and a smile. I'm also touched seeing the condition some of my fellow vets. are in and thank God I came home from Vietnam safe and sound. So, congratulations on the new job and thank you again.

We keep expanding services all the time. We are just one of a few VA's to offer this service, it still a lot of problems to work out, buts it's improving.

Congrats on the new Job and thanks for helping our vet's. I have several friends who have to go to Atlanta to the VA Hospital there and that is a blessing to them. The one thing I did that has paid off more then once has been my medical benefits from my military career.

We see some patients that are really messed up from Iraq. It is sad that these young people are this way. We have one patient that thinks every mailbox along side the road is another IED, and is scared to death to ride anywhere. I used work with a former Marine that was at Khe Sanh during Tet. He was one tough dude.

It helps to be a Vet, those that never served don't know what it's like to stand guard duty in the rain.

I spent 27 months behind the Iron Curtain in West Berlin, I have seen what it looks like where there is no freedom. Even tho I was never in combat, freedom IS worth fighting for, no matter where we have to fight. I have an Uncle that is still on Omaha Beach in France, he never made it ashore. I have a very deep respect for our servicemen and women. Working at the VA I see Vets from several different Wars and Conflicts.
