     More than two dozen VA hospitals across the country are now under investigation after it was revealed several veterans have died waiting for treatment.  Although none are in Michigan, many local veterans tell us it's a struggled to get proper medical care within the complicated VA system.  Two of them joined us to talk about it: Dakota Serna, who enlisted in the Marines at 18  and did a tour of Iraq as a Rifleman, and Steven Lull, a combat medic in the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army.  Also on the panel is Birmingham psychiatrist Dr. Gerald Schiener, who treats many veterans and non-veterans for PTSD.

     Next, we take a closer look at the VA system itself discuss what can be done to correct some of these massive problems with treatment.  We talk with Shawn Wilson, who's the Commander of Disabled American Veterans Michigan.  He's joined by retired Brig. Gen. Michael McDaniel and Judge Jodi Debbrecht Switalski, who runs a veteran's court in Oakland County.
