Who are these VA executives, by job title, who are entitled to bonuses for doing their jobs? The veterans they serve did not earn bonuses for doing their gut-wrenching jobs over and over, tour after tour, except perhaps a Purple Heart medal for losing a part or two of their anatomy. (“VA condemned for executive bonuses,” June 21)
We can assume that, as executives, they are very well compensated, able to retire at a relatively young age, with a comfortable defined-benefit pension.
Let's aspire to Congress nixing any further such bonuses, and providing increased funding to the VA continually as needed, and accounted for.
