Manchin Statement On VA Inspector General Report On Clarksburg VAMC Pharmacy

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement after the Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Inspector General (OIG) released their report on the Clarksburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) pharmacy.

“Today’s report from the VA Office of Inspector General’s investigation of the Clarksburg VAMC’s pharmacy reveals some isolated deficiencies in training and inventory reporting. While some of these instances may seem minor, the Clarksburg VAMC has a long way to go to rebuild trust in the Veteran community. While I commend the VA OIG for conducting this investigation after many concerned Veterans came forward, we must have a more in-depth examination of the leadership’s decisions and missteps that led to the murders of Veterans by Reta Mays. Until we have full accountability and answers to our most basic questions about those deaths, I will not relent.”
