Amy Hussar: VA has had time to improve

After reading your editorial of May 8 (“Obama must clean house, fix VA’s issues), I can’t help but draw a parallel between Eric Shinseki’s time as VA secretary and his time as Army chief of staff. I was stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center from 2001-02 and saw firsthand many of the conditions that came to light a few years later. Here we are a decade later, and I’m hearing similar stories about the VA. Why is that?
