Louisiana VA Director Fired

Hopefully, this will become a trend and the VA system can start to rebuild itself. It's a big ship to turn around, but at least it's a start. Hopefully, Shreveport will start running better!

Assholes like this guy should be prosecuted for this behavior. Obviously the malice exists, as well as attempting to cover it up.

It is nothing short of criminal. How we treat our veterans in this country is a shame. These stories really make me angry.

Maybe it's a start in the right direction. I'm going to have to see it to believe it, but hey, it's progress.

I've met several that should get the boot. Firing one guy will only make the other rat bastards to dig in deeper

Not gonna hold my breath, some civil service board or judge will probably give him his job back with back pay like the rest of the VA admins who have been "fired"

You guys can't see the forest through the trees

you gotta find out who is the ASSHOLE who hired this chucklehead. Under you make an example of THAT person, losers like this are gonna keep sliding in. There HAS to be consequences to hiring shitty people.

That place was FUBAR in the late '70s-early '80s when my dad worked there. He made it very clear to never use that place.
