WHAT: Advanced screening of “The Care They’ve Earned”
WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 23, 6–8:15 p.m.
WHERE: CVAF Wisconsin Field Office, 10111 West Capitol Drive
Concerned Veterans for America Foundation (CVAF) announced an advanced screening of “The Care They’ve Earned” scheduled for Thursday, August 23 in Wauwatosa. The documentary highlights six proud veterans’ experiences with an embattled VA – from botched surgeries to misdiagnoses to personnel shortfalls – and what care outside the VA has meant or could have meant for them.
Following the screening attendees will enjoy free dinner and a conversation with veterans in the community about challenges they have faced receiving care. Special guest Darin Selnick, the former Veterans Affairs Adviser on the White House Domestic Policy Council, will be on hand to discuss implementation of the VA MISSION Act and how the law can best serve our nation’s veterans. Selnick currently serves as a CVA senior advisor and previously served as Executive Director of the CVA-led Fixing Veterans Healthcare Taskforce.
“The Care They’ve Earned” is a gripping look into six veterans’ experiences with the Veterans Health Administration as they seek to manage the mental and physical traumas they sustained in uniform. It asks serious and complex questions about what kind of care our veterans have earned after they hang up their uniforms and when, how, and where they receive that care.
In all, the film highlights the struggles of finding adequate health care that all veterans face. It educates about the opportunity that more choices could mean for our veterans to receive the care they need – when and where they need it.
