Big Spring, Tx
Veterans held a town hall meeting today with Dr. Donald May, a candidate for congress. In the meeting, veterans discussed various issues affecting them. They called it a fact-finding mission for both May and the vets, as they wanted to know if his vision was in line with theirs. Much of the discussion focused on issues at the VA in Big Spring.
"The VA mainly is our biggest issue, not many services left and shutting down of inpatient care. Also, we don't have any 24 hour care available," said veteran Mike Tarpley.
The VA has told CBS 7 previously that they are expanding and modernizing their services, including their Telehealth services.
