Michael G. Sheppard describes how the VA is struggling due to the after-effects of Hurricane Florence.
Michael G Sheppard , Neighbor
Hurricane Florence has impacted many people throughout out the state of North Carolina. A group of veterans, many of them sick and disabled, began a return to the VA Medical Center in Hampton, Virginia on September 17th. The veterans were evacuated from the Medical Center to keep them safe from the effects of Hurricane Florence.
Veterans Administration took the precaution of closing five hospitals along with 18 clinics in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. These closings took place just ahead of the landfall of Florence on September 14.
