BROKEN PROMISES: Marine Combat Veteran Turns Whistleblower Exposing Compromised Mental Health Care at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
, September 07, 2023 ) Denver, CO and Providence, RI – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service
and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of new non-fiction.
: Marine Combat Veteran Turns Whistleblower Exposing Compromised Mental Health Care at the Department of
Affairs (VA) chronicles the heroic yet devastating journey by combat veteran Marine Corps Lietenant Colonel Ted Blickwedel (retired), the whistleblower who took on the
Department of Veterans Affairs
to defend veterans and those who serve them.
Veterans, their families and the counselors who serve them have been neglected by the callous, dispassionate bureaucracy of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Quality mental health care and counselor welfare have been sacrificed and diminished for the sake of numbers in the VA VET Center Program, which has had a devastating impact on veterans and the clinicians who care for them.
Enter Lieutenant Colonel Ted Blickwedel, whose crusade to correct this injustice finally led to congressional legislation being signed into law, holding VA management accountable to protect quality care for veterans and safeguard the well-being of their counselors.
“Tenacious, passionate, focused: Ted is a pit bull. In Broken Promises he gives us a systematic and deeply personal account of going into combat against an unexpected enemy. An enemy that should have been an ally… His story will touch the hearts of all who care about our nation’s veterans.” —Chaplain Mary Washburn, CAPT, USN, Retired
“This is a story of travesty and triumph, of tragedy and hope, of heartlessness and soulfulness... Blickwedel is a rare breed, a standup guy who will gain your trust and respect, then leave you in awe, cheering for his perseverance and indomitable spirit.” —Cynthia Huertas, Wellness Consultant & Biontologist
“Ted Blickwedel is, in fact, a true American hero.” —J. Scott Fox, Retired COO, Voya Financial

About the Author: Ted Blickwedel, a Marine Corps lieutenant colonel and combat veteran, became a licensed clinical social worker after retiring from the military.
