Default Trump's 'major meeting' on veterans affairs never happened

On Friday Trump boasted he would at the Southern W.H. have a Veterans Affairs meeting. Yet..... no meeting...

Well this seems strange... No event as Trump boasted, and it never appeared on Trump's official schedule for the day. Such a meeting has not been included in current or future schedules.

Plus now for 4 or 5 weekend in a row the costly trip to his Mar-a-Lago southern W.H. as Trump now calls it.. Costly and a bit of a Security risk and has some concerned.. After a picture of the aide with the football er, the nuclear launch codes was placed on Facebook..

Gee one has to wonder if this Mickey Mouse crew Trump has will ever get it together, as they spend taxpayers $.

Hey check it out as I might be passing fake news... Just ask CindyB our resident expert on that topic..

Disabled American Veterans gets first female commander...

Top VSO Gets First Female Commander
4 Aug 2017 | Retired Army Reserve First Sgt. Delphine Metcalf-Foster was elected Aug. 1 as commander of the Disabled American Veterans.
Quote:
One hundred years after the first women were permitted to officially join the U.S. military, a woman has been elected to head a top U.S. veterans' service organization. Retired Army Reserve First Sgt. Delphine Metcalf-Foster was elected Aug. 1 as national commander of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) at the organization's annual convention in New Orleans. Commanders of the organization, which has about 1.3 million members, serve one-year terms. Metcalf-Foster was elected unanimously, officials said. "When a man or woman raises their hand and says 'send me' when our nation calls, no one knows better than the members of DAV that they're writing a blank check to our country, and the ultimate payment could be their lives," Metcalf-Foster told the convention, according to a release. "For those who have sacrificed for our country and their survivors, we must insist on a strong VA and health care system to meet their needs," she said. "I look forward to continuing DAV's nearly century-old mission of service as national commander."


Retired Army Reserve First Sgt. Delphine Metcalf-Foster was elected August 1, 2017 as the new National Commander of the Disabled American Veterans.

Metcalf-Foster retired from the Reserves in 1996 after 21 years of service. Her units included the 689th Quartermaster Unit, 6253rd Hospital Unit and 6211th Transportation Unit, at the now-shuttered Letterman Army Medical Center in California. Prior to taking the top DAV leadership spot, Metcalf-Foster served as the first woman commander of the organization's California chapter. She also served a four-year appointment between 2012 and 2015 on the VA's Advisory Committee on Women Veterans.

Injured in combat in 1991 while deployed to Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Desert Storm, she was medevaced to Germany, DAV officials said in the release. "After Delphine Metcalf-Foster was medevaced out of theater during Desert Storm, she had one request: to return and bring her soldiers home," DAV National Adjutant and Navy veteran Marc Burgess said in a statement to Military.com. "This commitment to service over self exemplifies why Delphine is the perfect person for the job of DAV national commander," he said. "She has proven an unmatched commitment to her fellow disabled veterans, and the future of DAV is in strong, capable hands."

I'm shocked to learn Trump is a lying POS.

But has he been humbled down to only one ice cream scoop instead of two?

Golly!

The meeting that didn't occur didn't occur in March and has been discussed.

What that has to do with a new female DAV national commander I have no idea.

Meeting or not, several hundred VA personnel have been fired under his administration, which is a good thing. There has been too much corruption and incompetence at the VA and Trump is working on draining the swamp as he promised.

How many of those do you think the paperwork was started prior to the election? How many more is that than has been fired any other 6 month period.? Comparative studies or it is meaningless. By the way, 500 is a small drop in the bucket, but the RWNM makes a big deal out of it because well Trump is magic.

Your guessing as before Trump firing any Govt., worker much less a VA employee was difficult to not happening.

Trumps selection for the new VA Commander got the rules changed. And has gotten the smaller shrimp but not the big fish yet. That's what I am waiting for... Positions of leadership whom have failed to do a decent job getting the boot...

And you never heard of a position being filled. Gee Mikeyy your baiting again..

As is normal do a search for VA Employment in any state; This is Kansas so pick any one.

See they need well trained people and they do hire...
