When I heard that Mr. Trimmer had written a sequel, I ordered it immediately. This well written powerful book was the perfect follow-up to his initial expose’ effort. In it he recounts many of the responses he had received and continues to receive from Vets, their family members, congress, senators and yes, even from our new VA Secretary Bob, as he likes to be called. Several Vets credited Mr. Trimmer's book from preventing their suicides.
"Payback Time" calls out the politicians responsible for the past VA policies and tells us how to be sure that our government properly takes care of the veterans of all wars and conflicts, including the current ones. Mr. Trimmer points out that we need to hold our government's feet to the fire. We must not let them drop the momentum for change begun in 2014. We the people must not permit the government to slide on their obligations to properly and promptly: treat and provide short and long term rehabilitation for our returning veterans for their physical and mental wounds; resolve treatment and disability claims quickly and fairly; assist them in returning to productive civilian lives; provide education and job training as necessary. We also must provide for the families of deceased and injured veterans.
This is an important book that all Americans should read. Veterans, their family members and all citizens that have relied on our military to provide for our collective defense in a dangerous world should read this book. Think about it. Our military are 100% volunteers. They take an oath to follow the orders of the President of the United States, elected by the people, at the risk of severe injury, mental disorder or even death. Killing others, seeing friends killed, becoming maimed or mentally impaired and living under combat hardships while serving their country is very traumatic. Being ignored by the government after returning home is rude and ungrateful.
"Payback Time" reminds us of our obligations to our Veterans, especially those who served in Combat. I spoke with the author on the phone and have had the opportunity to meet him in person. Even though he suffers from PTSD, Hypertension, and 2 strokes directly resulting from his combat experiences including exposure to Agent Orange, this highly decorated combat veteran fought the VA for years before finally getting some treatment and disability payments.
He now spends 100% of his time writing, making appearances, emailing and talking to vets and their family members. He has attended too many funerals of platoon members who left this life too soon because the VA denied them treatment or refused to recognize their disabilities. He also told me that many of their wives died prematurely from the stress and constant frustration of dealing with their husband's maladies and the constant rejection and delays by our VA. Mr. Trimmer funds this full time effort through book sales, donations and personal funds.
Do yourself, your country. Veterans and their families a favor; join this effort and get a good read as a bonus. I could not put it down.
