Specifically looking to VBA employees out there?  Any comments about the recent changes..good or bad?  Awe we going the right direction, or is just more stress?

Will you salute the work of Dr. Patricia Hayes, who has dedicated her life to the cause of making women vets more visible?

A great article on using video teleconferencing to avoid gov't furloughs and save money. Do you agree?

At the Dallas VA a nurse lectured a female veteran for 2hrs about being a lesbian and leading a life of sin. This female vet was there to apply for disability payments and seek treatment for PTSD. I retired from the VA after 27yrs serving our veterans with compassion and pride. I am also a retired AFGE officer serving our federal employees with pride. This Va nurse is an embarassment to me and all other employees. The union is an embarassment for not demanding this nurse's immediate firing. This nurse violated this vets privacy by asking pointed personal questions: Are you a man or a woman? Are you a Lesbian? Have you accepted Jesus into your heart? Are you saved? The next 2 hours more to a religious sermon than a psychiatric screening.  Is this the kind of treatment our veterans can look forward to enduring.

As a former VA Director, you might be interested in my work.

 I've written four very well received books on managing in government, including "Managing Government Employees" and "Improving the Performance of Government Employees."  They are down to earth and filled with real world examples. Here is a link to the books:
