President Obama vows to watch over Veteran's Health Care..

It's a national scandal- allegedly forty or more veterans have died waiting for their VA health services.

But in the Mid -Ohio Valley, some local war heroes say they can't really complain about the issue of health care.

A World War II veteran from Vienna says his service in the 1950's cost him a fungal infection.

But by the time he filed for medical help, his records were lost..and he says he doesn't blame the government.

Another Army vet who was injured while stationed here in the U-S says he's had to wait for medical services. But no more than he'd expect at any other hospital or doctor's office.
