28 veterans tell their stories to House Republicans

In late April, CNN reported that 40 veterans died while waiting for appointments with the Phoenix Veterans Affairs health care system.

The news shocked the country.

But it was just the beginning of the story about the VA’s negligence in caring for our nation’s heroes.

House Republicans quickly went to work passing bills to hold the VA accountable and allow veterans to seek care outside the VA system to avoid long wait times.

We also began hearing your stories. We’ve now heard from thousands of veterans and their family members from every corner of the country about their experiences.

Below, we share 28 of those stories which reflect the  depth of the issues at the VA and the continued work it will take to fix them. Our veterans deserve better.
