Reader: Legislator showed compassion

After months of pain and suffering, and repeated failed attempts for treatment through the VA, I thought all hope was lost.

After my numerous attempts at contacting the VA, all I received was a pamphlet of information and a rejection letter to my request for treatment.

With nowhere else to turn, I went to the one man that I hoped could help me: Congressman Alex Mooney.

I contacted the Congressman’s office as a last resort and was unsure of what to expect or if there was anything at all he could do for a 100 percent connected service connected veteran.

After one letter to his office and his quick intervention on my behalf, I am finally getting the treatment and care I desperately need.

It is comforting to know that our Congressman listens to our calls, can work on our behalf, and gets things done!

On behalf of myself and all West Virginia veterans seeking assistance, thank you Congressman Mooney, for the amazing services you and your office provide.
