A Fresh Start on Veterans' Care: "we need 'ground truth'"

Listen to this story
There are approximately 1.7 million veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The largest group that represents them says President-Elect Barack Obama needs to listen to the "boots-on-the-ground" truth about veterans' health care. We continue "A Fresh Start," our series of recommendations for the Obama Adminsitration, with Todd Bowers of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. He's also a marine staff sergeant who served two tours of duty in Iraq. Bowers told David Sommerstein Congress has made hundreds of recommendations to better help veterans since the neglect scandal at Walter Reed almost two years ago. But he says most of those are gathering dust on shelves. He says the Obama Administration must implement them.
