Phoenix VA Medical System is Failing Veterans

VFW WANTS LEADERSHIP HELD ACCOUNTABLE

∼ The national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is calling for the full accountability of the leadership at a Department of Veterans Affairs health care system in Phoenix after it was reported that at least 40 veterans have died while awaiting care.

“Leadership, management and accountability is all we have ever required of the VA,” said William A. Thien, a Vietnam veteran from Georgetown, Ind., who leads the 1.9 million-member VFW and its Auxiliaries. “When you deal with lives, there should be no leniency granted to anyone with any knowledge of this alleged cover-up, to include everyone in Phoenix who knew but didn’t tell, and those in oversight positions at the VA network and VA headquarters in Washington who knew but didn’t care,” he said.
