Most at VA blameless

I would like to thank the Trib for its coverage of the recent Department of Veterans Affairs hospital issues. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. I believe it is reporting like this that provides checks on the power of government. I am hopeful that the current investigation will get to the bottom of who is responsible for these deaths by Legionnaires' disease and/or their cover-up.

However, as a Vietnam veteran who uses the services provided by the Oakland VA facility, let me say that I have always been treated with the utmost respect, professionalism and kindness by every one of the dozens of employees with whom I have had direct contact.

I would like to remind the public that there are thousands of VA employees who come to work every day and work hard to bring world-class health care to our nation's veterans. I do not believe these dedicated, hardworking employees should be painted with the same brush as those who have caused this terrible tragedy.
