Almost 3 weeks ago my husbands new VSP Trooper stopped by for one of the two (per VA law) unannounced VSP Residency checks. His original VSP Trooper was promoted and we were assigned another Trooper instead of a VSP Compliance Officer. I personally believe he’s assigned Troopers instead of CO’s because of my public advocacy, but maybe not.
Anyway, I could tell the Trooper was holding back on asking me or rather telling me something so I invited him inside our house instead of the typical 2-minute simple chit-chat on the front porch.
During the 10 maybe 15 minute conversation about my advocacy, legislative proposals and yearly battles/barriers with VSP Legislative Liaisons/Representatives at the VA GA sessions the Trooper made some key comments that I’ve decided he was instructed to say to me. He also seemed to have established a belief that nothing I’ve asked for over the years is reasonable or will ever be accomplished.
This post is about one of the points I discussed with the Trooper.
