This comes on the heels of recent reports that conditions of Walter Reed Army Medical Center are unacceptable.
Monday afternoon, Junior Vice Commander-in-Chief, Glen Gardner made a stop at a local post. He said the government needs to step up and pay up.
“We have a lot of young men and women that are going six months to a year before they get a compensation check. A lot of them don't have a way to pay their bills, they're out of the service, they can't go back to work, they've lost legs, they've lost arms and it's just a system that needs to be worked on,” said Gardner.
Gardner spent the weekend traveling to posts all over Virginia spreading the word on the issues facing veterans.
