Manchin Holds Listening Session For West Virginia Veterans' Concerns
Today I held a listening session with Veterans from across West Virginia to hear their concerns about the VA’s deeply flawed recommendations to the AIR Commission that will impact rural states like West Virginia far more than other parts of America. Three of our four VAMCs in West Virginia would be downsized, forcing our brave Veterans to travel farther for the same care they’ve received at our VAMCs for years. I will take what I heard from our Veterans today back to Washington to fight against any recommendations that would take away services from our Veterans. I will fight tooth and nail to prevent the loss of a single VA service or facility in West Virginia.
