Lawmakers urge better help for troops, vets
Lawmakers seek more help for troops, vets who need health care or aid finding civilian jobs
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Lawmakers are urging defense and veterans officials to improve government services for troops and the nation's war vets.

They said at a joint hearing of two House committees Wednesday that the Obama administration needs to work harder to provide health care for those wounded in this decade's wars and to help troops transitioning out of the services and back to civilian jobs.

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta were explaining what progress they've made in coordinating the work of their two departments to try to reduce some of the layers of bureaucracy that troops have to work through to get what they need. They spoke to the House Armed Services Committee and Veterans Affairs Committee.
