Re: “Pure hope

I am not playing these childish games with this Ric. Guess what, Ric? I am a veteran with service connected severe PTSD and your hallway of tanning beds looked like coffins to me, and I was triggered. Do you know what that is? Do you know what triggers each of us? Do you know what to do when one of us gets triggered? Where is your therapist? Where is your aftercare? If you are indeed part of Ryan's organization, why are your programs different? Ryan told me to my face that he has more money than he knows what do to with. Why do you not have any? That way, the veteran would not have to find half of the funding for the therapy. I just want you people to get some training, but thanks for attacking a veteran, who sacrificed FOR YOU. Just have enough respect for the veterans to get some training, that is NOT too much to ask.

Re: “Pure hope

I don't care who thinks they know this Ric, but I am telling the truth about the abuse. I even contacted the Wounded Warriors, Operation TBI Freedom, and the VA Caregiver system. This is junior high nonsense. I do NOT care who you are, he physically touched me, OUT OF ANGER. Have you EVER thought about what the veterans see, when Ric MAKES them walk through the entire place. Down hallways with doors open to what look like COFFINS. THAT is NOT conducive to healing. I saw a back door, and asked if the veterans could come through the back, because this is what they would see; my husband did. He said no way, did not even have any courtesy FROM THE BEGINNIG, physically "chest bumped" me. What is it with that Douch move? Then we left. I have lied about nothing, and if this RIC want to play junior high, instead of business man, fine. I have yet to do many LEGAL thing on my part, to ensure no veterans get hurt. It is just a matter of time. They are showing WAR movies to veterans who just got back from war. One veteran is going to get triggered, because you ALL refuse to get training, and at the very least, you will have a ruined tube. That vet gets out, someone is going to get hurt. That is what I am trying to make you civilians, who have obviously never served a day in your life, GIVE the best treatment, but you are all too good to listen to a stupid woman. I was trying to HELP THESE PEOPLE. All your employees, when I would tell them war movies NOT a good idea, their EXACT words(from all of them), were, "Well the road to hell is paved with good intentions." Good intentions IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. These civilian places NEED training. They abused my husband so badly, he is regressing, now does ANY ONE care about a war hero that was abused, then abandoned. He is getting worse, and you caused it, and are UNWILLING to make it right. We will be looking in to the Ft.Carson HBOT. It is wonderful therapy, but the patient cannot be being abused or neglected; as we have seen. My husband said the trauma he endured in Louiseville, made the treatments useless. He is now worse. This man has been awared TWO Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star, and MANY other commendations. How is ANY of this alright with you "healthcare providers"? Who CARE if you like the patient, gives one NO excuse to abuse all THREE veterans. I am still willing to die for my country, how about you, RIC? Did you ever serve a day in the military? Either way, I am just asking that you all get training. If veterans means as much to you so you SAY they do; what the hell is the problem about getting some training? Is your time too valuable? Ours was not, as we keep ensuring YOUR freedom. Every word I have written is the truth. RIC probably even has himself going after me on camera! You people either want to HELP veterans, or just look good. If it is the former, why the issue with getting training? Do you not have to keep up on the latest technologies in artificial tanning? Why don't veterans get your same time and attention? All I did was tell the truth, and, like I have been begging for months, JUST GET SOME TRAINING, it is not that difficult. Heck, I will even set it up for you, if you do not know where to go for assistance. This is not about this Ric, or anyone but the VETERANS. We are the reason you are free. The LEAST you could do is take a lousy training course, not too much to ask, but one must be willing and their motives must be altruistic. I will help, you ALL need training; if nothing else, you may learn something interesting. Veterans have trust issues to begin with, and if you are not willing to learn about us, why should any of us trust you WITH OUR BRAINS? You have already done more harm than good to my husband, and I hope that Ft. Carson can help him, he is damaged so thoroughly now, thank you. Once again, I did nothing but tell the truth, if one cannot handle it, then one should CHANGE.

Re: “Pure hope

My husband went through HBOT therapy in Louisville, CO. DO NOT SENT VETERANS. They do not understand, nor do they care about us veterans. This place, Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric Chamber Institute, WILL either get a veteran hurt or killed. They had a MARRIED man alone in a house with a WOMAN and her service dog. At about treatment number 15, the patient's repressed memories begin to come to the forefront. Confusion, sadness, anger, you name it; they feel all at once. This clinic is making veterans come by themselves, to fit more patients, more money. This clinic is NOT going to help veterans. Neither is the one in the Sun Spot on Austin Bluffs; classy. Combat vets would first have to endure the stench and the porno things; and that is just at the front door. To get to the chamber itself, the veterans MUST walk down a hallway with room on either side with open tanning bed; looks like coffins. The owner, Ric Rooney, is in collusion, I believe. He did not even shake a ladies hand, and I offered my hand first. He was so angry RIGHT when we got there, he said get the hell out. Then this failed bodybuilder, wanna-be porno king "chest bumped" me in anger. HE PYSICALLY TOUCHED A WOMAN OUT OF ANGER. A VETERAN! I WILL do everything in my power to make sure these civilians, who are only in it for the money, not hurt any more veterans. I think a Forensic Accountant is needed, but what do I know?! I am just a girl veteran; but guess what? Stephen Hawking's I.Q. is ONLY 160. The bear has been poked. Thank you for the article. Thank you to the ARMY. My husband is regressing, quickly, and we now have nowhere to turn. This is wrong. Americans are taking advantage of, scamming and abusing us without consequence. It makes my sacrifices SO worth it. I WILL die for my country, will you?
