True story. I spoke with an Army veteran who had a below-the-knee amputation recently, and he had this to say via text message about his experience with the Veterans Administration (VA).

“I’m 8 weeks past amputation and the VA won’t even listen to the prosthesis they referred me out too!”

“After talking to Hanger orthotic every veteran that needs a prosthetic is getting delayed some guys 4-6 months after amputation.”

We have a term for this in the military, and it’s called UNSAT (short for unsatisfactory).
