A local congressman is hitting the road on behalf of area veterans. U.S. Rep. Bob Latta spoke with veterans on Tuesday to hear their problems when it comes to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
There are various issues veterans are facing, especially when it comes to health care and the V.A. Congressman Latta made an appearance at the American Legion in Findlay to discuss those issues.
"Feel very encouraged with the congressman listening to us. Now, unfortunately, when it get's to D.C., I'm not so confident," said Rick Walter, an Air Force veteran.
Many veterans agree with Walter. Latta hopes to ease some concerns when it comes to health care through the V.A.
"They're saying we can't get rid of people. We'll help them along. We'll pass legislation so you can get rid of people if they're not doing their job. It's so important because these are the individuals that have to be helped. These are the folks that put their lives on the line for us," said Latta.
A big part of the problem veterans have been facing with the V.A. is delays with health care, which has even resulted in death around the country. Veterans feel it's the least that can be done for them.
"If it's out there, you worked for it. You deserve it. Don't feel bad about it. You're an American," said Donald Stout, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.
Latta also heard the concerns of veterans in Perrysburg and Defiance on Tuesday. More hearings on this V.A. issue will be heard in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
