Letter: Family of veteran says thanks to Fargo VA

Since it is Veterans Day, we thought it was the appropriate time to give out a special thank you to the Fargo Veterans Health Care System. Our dad and husband, H.D. "Duke" Samson, was a patient there for over 15 years, and during that time he received such outstanding medical care.

He was a patient of the "Red Team" under Dr. Jacobson and his nurse Scott. During those many years if there ever was a medical question or we needed answers to a specific problem, we always felt he received the best advice possible.

He was always given such respect, whether he needed help from the pharmacy, medical records or ENT departments. Duke's last visit was with the hospice and palliative care team and our dad was treated with such care and compassion, we promised our dad we would not forget to show our utmost appreciation for the kindness shown to him in his final days.

Again, thank you, Fargo VA.
