Glendale at the McDonald's east of Mansfield, Ohio

Glendale’s a World War II vet (Coast Guard). He tells me that being in the VA system, he’s had no problems with healthcare. He had a heart attack six years ago with a quadruple bypass but, “now,” he said, “I'm doing fine.” He’s been retired for 23 years, gets his medications from the VA and also receives Medicare and retirement benefits. “I hope they get that healthcare in this country worked out, there’s so many people without it,” he said. This is a man who fought for freedom; has his fight been in vain?
