Embattled VA Secretary gets support at DE veterans summit

An unidentified US military veteran age 62 committed suicide inside the waiting of room of the John Cochran VA Medical Center in St Louis Missouri early on Monday

A Navy veteran is now in charge of the medical center at the Salisbury VA.

"Secretary Shulkin's singular focus is on finding the best ways to provide care and benefits to our country's heroes", said Shulkin's strategic adviser, Ashleigh Barry, in response to questions about the secretary's public plans in the coming days. The three officials demanded anonymity to discuss a sensitive personnel matter.

U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin testifies to the House Veterans' Affairs Committee.

Shah sped by questions about Shulkin Monday.

"At this point in time, though he does have confidence in Dr. Shulkin", Gidley said.

Later, another reporter asked about Shulkin and Trump's relationship. "As you know, the President wants to put the right people in the right place at the right time and that could change".

And Shulkin later told a confidant that moving Selnick out of the VA was a big mistake because he did more damage while at the White House, according to the website.

Meanwhile, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin continues to hold the post.

"Serving veterans in our community is not only deeply personal to me, it's also the most frequent request that I get as a member of Congress", Mast said on Tuesday. "VA is providing leadership in those areas and leading the way in care to keep our veterans safe".

The new law requires the US department of Veterans Affairs to provide mental and behavioral health care to hundreds of thousands of at-risk combat veterans and sexual assault victims who received Other-Than-Honorable (OTH) discharges.
