Lawyer's, Assistant
My husband voluntarily admitted himself to the VA today. Because of his size he's over 6 ft tall that 260 they escorted him in the back of a sheriff's car instead of an ambulance. He is asked to leave multiple times and is maintained control of himself he is suicidal but the current situation in the city Atlanta Georgia VA mental ward is not helping that. They will not let him out until the doctor evaluates him in the morning I'm afraid he may snap by then. It freaks him out when people are watching him because that's how people watch them before an IUD went off in Afghanistan and Iraq. He had a buddy from the core that also went to this facility a few months ago and the day he got out he killed himself. Is there anything I can do to try to get him out of there tonight some kind of injunction something or at least get him transferred to a better facility Emory VA Atlanta or on over to Augusta just somewhere other than that shithole.
JA: Have you talked to a JAG attorney about this? Or anyone in the chain of command?
Customer: No, I don't know where to turn. I called the crisis lines but they're no help they think he's right where he needs to be.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Yes he went to the VA in Carrollton Georgia first thing this morning and voluntarily checked himself in because he was having suicidal thoughts and violent thoughts. He told them the truth his father who was a decorated Navy veteran passed away in December and I believe he is in the anger stage of grief. He has been having violent thoughts for days now and he has composed his self even when being ambushed by other family members and I have video evidence that he can keep his cool and control himself.
