Veterans demonstrate outside ABQ VA

Veterans for peace

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico veterans want to make sure the problems at the VA Hospital don’t get brushed under the rug.

Members of Veterans for Peace held a demonstration outside the VA Thursday. Each has had their own experiences with long waits.

While Congress, the Department of Veterans Affairs and others are investigating the massive delays in treatment for veterans and secret waiting lists, veterans say it’s not getting any better.

They say the big problem is an overwhelmed system with not enough money. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
