Willie Haywood Jr., District 6 Representative of the National Veterans Affairs Council, discussed the current state of the VA’s across the country. Haywood , member of VA Council 262, which encompasses Indiana, Ohio and Northern Kentucky, talked about fully staffing VA’s. He said that by fully staffing veterans, they will be able to receive the proper, adequate care that they need and deserve.
