Altoona VA closures leaves vets scrambling

What will veterans do when the Altoona VA closes the ER and ICU?

Where are our congressmen on this issue, and why did they allow this to happen?

There is no ER in Pittsburgh? We moved to Altoona less than a year ago because DuBois Hospital refused to continue outpatient services.

With a disabled spouse, we thought we would be better off in Altoona where we could be close to the VA Medical Center. In the last eight weeks, we had to use the ER there.

Is this what veterans can expect from the government – less and less care?
