In observance of Memorial Day, today we focus on health care for veterans. Our guest is Suzanne Gordon, author of Wounds of War: How the VA Delivers Health, Healing, and Hope to the Nation’s Veterans. She highlights the wide-ranging health needs of veterans, including hearing loss, PTSD, exposure to toxins, and other injuries, and how the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) operates as the largest integrated national healthcare system in the U.S.
