Local media stories from across the country indicate the problems with VA medical centers are much more widespread than national media may be reporting.
KKCO in Grand Junction, Colorado ran a story detailing the plight of two veterans. One bluntly said the VA’s lack of urgency cost him his leg.
Larry Wilkinson said a VA doctor never called him with the test results of a foot infection and after two months of no news, he had to have his leg amputated.
“I feel the VA owes me a leg,” Wilkinson said.
