Upset with VA

To the Editor:

I served my country in the Navy for four years active and two years inactive.

I proudly wear my Navy cap when I go out. It is a wonderful feeling when someone says, “Thank you for serving,” and shakes my hand.

It’s too bad Veterans Affairs doesn’t say or do anything.

In the process of trying to acquire a veterans photo ID, the VA determined that I don’t meet the requirements for a picture ID. I don’t think it is a large amount of money. The VA said that I didn’t spend enough money to qualify for a picture ID.

I wish someone could explain to me what this has to do with the price of tea in China.
