Veterans speak out about VA at public forum


First Congressional District candidate Dr. Bob Johnson heard from fellow veterans about how to reform the VA at a veteran's forum on Thursday. 

Johnson says if elected he will ask to serve on the veterans affairs committee to try to fix some of the problems plaguing the VA.

One veteran said these problems are nothing new. 

"I've been dealing with the VA for over 40 years and it's been going on since the time I started dealing with the VA, so it's nothing new. Something needs to be done about it, I don't know what, but something definitely needs to be done about it. It's nothing new," says Donald Singleton, Veteran, 147th Airborne Division. 

Johnson faces Buddy Carter in a runoff on July 21.
