Concerned Veterans for America Highlights Veterans’ Struggles, VA Failures in New Video Campaign

Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) released a new video today as part of its “My VA Story” campaign highlighting the VA’s failure to adequately care for the needs of veterans.

The recent testimonial features Army Green Beret and CVA National Field Director Nate Anderson, who was treated by the Minneapolis VA for traumatic brain injury (TBI), only to learn that he had been misdiagnosed by the VA’s medical professionals who were not certified to diagnose or treat TBI.

CVA’s “My VA Story” campaign focuses on telling the stories of real veterans who have been left behind by an ever-expanding VA bureaucracy, and who have suffered from poor care, or sometimes a complete lack of care at all. Despite a workforce larger than the entire Marine Corps and a budget that continues to grow by billions of dollars every year, the VA continues to fail veterans across the country. In order to advance real VA reform and foster true VA accountability, veterans like Nate Anderson need to have their stories told.
