Video: Vet’s Pain Meds Disappearing In The Mail

An area veteran says his pain medication is getting lost in the postal service, and now the VA says he’ll have to travel to Sioux Falls to get it. 

Gary Reutzel says, “I had my knee replaced almost five years ago. Ever since it’s been replaced, they’ve done a great job on it, but I’ve had constant pain because I’ve lost muscle and it does not work and it causes everything to go up into my back, up into everything, so I have constant pain.” 

The VA had an awesome system set up for those that can’t make frequent trips to Veterans hospitals, or live far away – mail it.
