Obama pledges to uphold 'sacred trust' with U.S. veterans

U.S. President Obama makes a statement to the press after meeting with Veteran Affairs Secretary Shinseki at the White House in WashingtonAt the end of a week rocked by allegations of mismanagement and cover-ups at the Department of Veterans Affairs, President Barack Obama used his weekly address on Saturday to vow again to make sure veterans get the necessary medical care. “Let’s keep working to make sure that our country upholds our sacred trust to all who’ve served,” Obama said in his address, which aired on Memorial Day holiday weekend, when Americans honor their war dead. Obama responded personally this week to a growing furor that veterans had suffered long delays in receiving healthcare, making clear that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki’s job could be on the line. Obama has assigned Rob Nabors, one of his top aides, to conduct his own look into what happened.
