Manchin Statement on Beckley VA Reports of Misconduct

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today issued the following statement on the misconduct reported at the Beckley VA.

“I was deeply troubled to read about the reports of mistreatment and misconduct at the Beckley VA,” Senator Manchin said. “Our veterans have given so much to this country, and we owe them the best available care when they return home. As my staff investigates the matter further, I have personally spoken to Beckley VA Director Karin L McGraw, and I plan to speak with Secretary McDonald and other federal officials as soon as possible. We must ensure that not only responsible individuals are held accountable, but we must also find a solution that warrants our veterans are never subjected to this type of mistreatment again.”
