This week, VA is participating in Public Service Recognition Week, an annual celebration to honor the country’s many public servants and to show appreciation for their work.  Through the week, VA offices around the country will hold events to honor and recognize our employees for all they do for our department and the Veterans we serve.

As I travel to VA facilities across the country, I am continually impressed by the dedicated employees we have at VA.  Your contributions touch Veterans’ lives and are helping to transform VA to be the best it can be.  The small things you do every day are what enable the bigger changes, and I thank you for the strong foundation you provide our organization.

The committed work that you do every day makes VA’s mission possible.  I believe that VA’s greatest strength lies in its workforce – the men and women of VA who live out our I CARE core values every day.  Thank you for your service and commitment to VA and our Veterans.

    Before McDonald gives awards for the good care given, he should try being an inpatient in the Northport, N.Y. Hospital. Talking to people isn’t the solution, experiencing it may be. Aides are lazy and abusive there, all they worry about are their days off and what the other aides are doing. The aides in Northport are both physically and verbally abusive, so much so that we left a cell phone on to record them.
