I have heard stories of veterans having to wait months to get helped by VA. Stories of several different kinds of drugs prescribed to veterans who have PTSD, with little or not follow up on how the vet is doing with the prescriptions. I am thinking that this “audit” might just be the tip of the ice burg in what is wrong with some of the VA hospitals.
VA Secretary Eric Shinseki ordered the audit for all VA clinics last week.
The order came after new allegations across the country of veterans dying while waiting for care at VA facilities.
CBS11 has learned a team from the inspector general’s office was also visiting the North Texas VA system this week.
CBS 11’s I-Team has done extensive reporting on veteran complaints regarding VA health care. Click below to for complete coverage:

Four good men died on that fateful day, on September 11th, 2012, Ambassador Rick Stevens; Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer; and former Navy SEALs, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone S. Woods. Former Navy Seals Brandon Web and Jack Murphy wrote a terrific Kindle book, entitled Benghazi, the Definitive Report, that tells of the events prior to, during and after the attack.(Another question to ask the powers that be is why these men’s families have yet to receive any compensation from our government for their loved ones ultimate sacrifice. The answer to that might be most interesting to all of us.)
And yet, many people my wonder why what happened in Benghazi matters. today. If you too wonder, I suggest reading an excellent article written by Reporter, John Kass, of the Chicago Tribune, entitled , “Benghazi Email Coverup,” explaining why we need to hold our powers that be accountable can be reached at this link: http://tinyurl.com/kg2eqg4
