How Long Are Maryland Veterans Waiting For Health Care?

In honor of Veterans Day tomorrow, we’re devoting most of our show to the impacts of wars on the people who fight them. We begin with one of the most visible impacts: a veteran’s health. More than 55,000 veterans in Maryland are served by the VA system. With Sheilah now to talk about veterans’ health care in our state is Dr. Sandra Marshall the deputy chief of staff at the VA Maryland Health Care System.


If you're a veteran, you can sign up for health care at the VA here. That's where you'll also find location information for the VA hospitals and clinics in Maryland.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
