    As a Navy veteran with Armed Forces Radio and Television Service and career civilian journalist, I commend the excellent way the VA has formatted this production, making it simple yet relevant to pass on important information to veterans, regardless of their military backgrounds. The presentations were often moving, bringing a tear to my eye.
    Communications with the ailing veteran as just as important as providing medical services. Thank you very much.
