SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis (R) will visit the W.G. "Bill" Hefner Veterans Administration Medical Center on Friday, according to his office.
Tillis visited the VA Medical Center in Durham on Friday morning.
The visit comes just as a new report finds that many veterans are still having to wait to long for appointments in VA Medical Centers.
Since the problem was first exposed last year, politicians made lots of speeches and billions of dollars were promised, but 6 months of data compiled by the Associated Press not only shows the issue persists, it's especially acute here in the Carolinas.
