Connecticut Navy veteran fights denial of VA medical care … and wins, with others’ help

If you missed it, — the investigative health news site — posted a story last week about a Connecticut veteran who couldn’t get medical care at a veterans hospital because he had an “other than honorable” discharge.

With help from a variety of sources, Stephen Norko, who now lives in veterans housing in Bridgeport, successfully appealed the ruling, a successful appeal being a rarity nationally.

The story is a good mirror into the experiences of some U.S. vets.
