Atlanta VA Medical Center: Georgia vets wait for medical care

"You almost have to know someone to get a decent appointment schedule," concurred William Mitiu, a veteran who served our country 24 years and has suffered from suicidal thoughts.

According to the report, the investigation started after a "confidential complainant alleged that as a result of excessive wait times, patients may be placed at risk."

The report found that some of those veterans attempted suicide while waiting, although it stopped short of blaming the suicide attempts on delayed treatment.
