    Our veterans put their lives on the line for our country. The expectation is that when they get home, their needs will be met. But the 13abc I-Team has found that's not always happening. There's a huge backlog getting them the care they need. The I-Team has been digging into this issue for several months.

There's a huge backlog getting them the care they need. The I-Team has been digging into this issue for several months.
The 13abc I-Team has found some of our country’s heroes are not getting the care they need.  It’s part of an I-Team investigation into the care they are receiving or not receiving through the VA.  The I-Team has talked to veterans of several conflicts and their stories seem to be similar. According to the VA, steps are being taken to try and eliminate the backlog of cases, but the I-Team has learned there’s another number that’s growing.  That number is leaving more and more people worried that our nation’s heroes are not getting the care they deserve.

It’s all part of a 13abc I-Team Investigation this Thursday on Action News at 6.
