President Barack Obama will nominate Bob Mcdonald to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to the White House.
Mcdonald is a West Point graduate and the former CEO of Procter and Gamble. The Veterans Affairs Health Care System needs to be overhauled, according to a report delivered Friday to President Obama.
It blamed unresponsive leadership and a "corrosive culture" for the problems. The VA in Phoenix is accused of using a secret list to cover up excessive waiting times for veterans to see a doctor. Some of the vets died in the process.
