The Overwatch | #VAFail - VA flushes $7.2 million down the toilet on computers and software licenses it didn't need.
"A new report by the Office of Inspector General this week revealed that the VA’s Office of Information and Technology spent $7.2 million on computers and software licenses that it did not need. That $7.2 million has now been deemed waste."
By exercising his 1st Amendment rights and blowing the whistle, Brandon Coleman likely saved lives at the Phoenix VA.
"It’s clear from this statement that if Brandon Coleman hadn’t voiced his concerns; if he had listened to his superiors telling him to keep quiet; and if he had bent to the will of retaliation, more lives could have been put at risk."
The Overwatch | On #PearlHarborRemembranceDay we honor those who lost their lives 75 years ago today.
"That day, just as September 11th, is a reminder that liberty has enemies and that life can be altered in an instant. But it is also a reminder that Americans are always ready and willing to be defenders of liberty."

We must defend the First Amendment rights of our veterans. WATCH and SHARE Brandon's story!
