It's becoming increasing clear that the wait lists at V-A hospitals across the country -- are a lot longer than official lists would suggest.


Ron Morgan is the head of Oregon's Vietnam Veterans of America and believes we don't have enough resources to meet the incredible demand.


"I think it's systemic of poor management of a system that goes all the way to the top.  The Director can talk about being mad as hell, but when you have a motorboat mouth and a rowboat butt, nothing is going to get done.  I think he should resign personally."


President Obama accepted General Shinsheki's resignation this morning.


Morgan believes the problems of lack of resources at the V-A isn't a new problem.


"We've got a finite amount of resources to work with and someone has to take a back seat and unfortunately that has to be the older veterans."


Currently the probe into hidden wait lists to conceal long wait times has expanded to 42 V-A hospitals throughout the country.
