Just in time for Veteran's Day observances across the country, the head of the VA has announced he would like to see a restructuring of the department, including the dismissal of about 1000 people from the administration. Fox News reported on the plan, as did other media on Monday.

As well, the Detroit Free Press offered an editorial in its Tuesday edition, discussing how Michigan and Governor Snyder are attempting to raise the state's standing in its treatment of veterans.

Coming up on The Richard Piet Show on WBCK this morning, Battle Creek VA spokesperson Damian McGee will talk about the local VA and its main objectives here in our community. That will be after the 8am news.
