As nation remembers fallen, VA scandal still lingers
It is a day to remember those who died serving. But across the nation, there is uproar over the alleged cover-up at the Department of Veterans Affairs. “It is dishonorable. It is disgraceful. And I will not tolerate it, period,” said President Barrack Obama last week during a press conference. Employees of more than two dozen veterans hospitals across the country are accused of “cooking the books” by manipulating records to hide long delays in treating injured veterans.
