Audit Reveals VA Shortcomings

-
(NBC News)  The Veterans Affairs Department has released the results of a nation wide audit.

It found more than 57,000 veterans have been waiting up to three months for a medical appointment.

The audit found said a 14-day target for appointment wait times was "not attainable."
