All this week, Hawai‘i Public Radio is revisiting stories we’ve covered in the past to bring you up to date with the latest developments.  It’s a series we call “Following Up.”

It’s been more than a year since the Veterans Administration came under fire for problems throughout its health care system - including stories of veterans waiting months for medical care.  Last year, HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka spoke with a number of local veterans who complained about their VA medical treatment.  Today, he follows up on one of those cases.
