(Tampa Bay Tribune) Like a lot of veterans, Michael Henry says he has been waiting a long time for help from the C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center in Pinellas County.

But unlike most, Henry, a medically discharged Army staff sergeant, had armed agents from the Department of Veteran Affairs’ Office of Inspector General show up at his house in St. Petersburg last week.

He said they wanted to know if he had threatened Young center director Suzanne M. Klinker about 90 minutes earlier. The agents, he said, were antagonistic and told him that they would find a way to charge him and that they would “slow-walk” any VA claims he had pending or in the future.
