A Chambersburg family talked candidly Friday about issues plaguing the Veterans Affairs centers across the U.S.
He’s talking about his son, Gary Brehm Jr. who also served in the Marines. On top of the Spina Bifida, he says he suffers with trauma that is a direct product of his enlistment.
He says he would like the disability claims of he and his father to be reviewed and reconsidered but still fears what he calls the “revolving door” of veterans affairs.
“They wanted to keep me in the system,” he said. “This has been revolving since 1994.”
Some veterans, however, say legislators should not be left out of the blame. In 2000 and 2002, Toomey voted against V.A. funding bills.
