VA Backlog is Huge and Records Are UnreliableTweet
March 21, 2013
As many as hundreds of thousands of veterans could be in the Department of Veteran Affairs backlog waiting for medical appointments, David Hilzenrath, the Project On Government Oversight’s editor-in-chief, said on Public News Service today.
"We're talking about people who come back from war with physical injuries, with psychological injuries, with traumas of various sorts that could incapacitate them or render them suicidal," he said.
The interview was based on an article Hilzenrath wrote last week about the VA delays. You can listen to the full interview at Public News Service.
