Contemptuous and Unscrupulous acts upon Veterans by the Veterans Affairs

Posted on January 12, 2014

Even Robin Hood could not imagine such contemptuous and unscrupulous acts being inflicted upon our Veterans by the Veterans Affairs Staff.

And yet the facts show nothing more than the robbing and pillaging of resources & services from the very veterans who served our country, veterans who were ready to fight in an instant for our freedoms.

The VA sent paperwork authorizing the manufacturing of a pair of artificial Legs for Charles Canamar, after cutting off both of his legs at Tripler. We obtained the documents and the proof of the authorization from sources. And after the legs were manufactured the VA verbally cancelled the order & has not paid the prosthesis company here in Honolulu. Mr. Canamar was even allowed to try the artificial legs on and stood up in them, without any knowledge of what would next take place. We were informed that in as early as October a few staff members from the Veterans Affairs contemptuously cancelled the order with a few phone calls, giving no formal cancellation on paper or even a valid reason to the prosthesis Company, and no notification of any cancellation to recipient Mr. Charles Canamar. The Company is now out for more than $20,000, which is still owed by the Veterans Affairs for the manufacturing of the prosthesis (artificial Legs). We saw the 2 artificial legs which were custom made and only fit Charles, now just sitting on a shelf collecting dust.

Our continued coverage of Charles and this story was first brought to you in early December 2013 when we had reached out to President Obama, to his chief of staff, and the White House Press. Regarding Charles plight for his 2 legs on several occasions but Charles has been continuously ignored. Many community members have expressed disappointment over the President & the White House staff’s “closed eyes” policy to ignore these contemptuous and unscrupulous acts by the VA administration and another Veteran in need.

We also reached out to Aaron Williams, the Chief of Prosthetics at the Honolulu VA Medical Center and other staff at Tripler Army Center for a response but to date have received no calls back. Or has there been any response from Tracey Betts who is the Regional Director for the VA here in Hawaii.

We believe these are unlawful acts towards Charles Canamar and the VA and its staff should be investigated by the FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Check back as we will be bringing you more updates, news stories and photos of the Veteran Charles Canamar ongoing plight, and our hopes that Mr. Canamar will be issued his two artificial legs that just sit on a shelf, which were originally authorized by the VA’s physician – Erika Pang MD.

Watch our TV coverage, we filmed the disheartening attempts of Disabled Veteran Charles Canamar who had continuously been ignored. While the President of the United States drives by past the disabled Veteran and double amputee Charles Canamar as No legs & no Aloha was given.
