More smoke and mirrors... extending the program does nothing for fixing it. It appears that it is still the VA's call regarding approval to use the card. And why the 40 mile qualifier. It should be available to any vet, anywhere any time and stop all the bureaucracy. I don't see much improvement under this new Secretary... he was the number 2 guy under the previous administration and did not do much... expectations are low that we will see a real improvement.
