Veterans committees to look at suicides
Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, D-Wash., declined to be interviewed about the issue. Instead, she released a statement that blamed a lack of coordination between the Department of Defense and the VA, a topic she has already explored at a May 18 hearing. "We need to do more than just criticize the VA. We must roll up our sleeves and fix the problems plaguing the department. That means getting VA and DoD to collaborate better so that veterans don't come home and fall through the cracks of a system that is too often filled with red tape," Murray said.
