Charles Campbell for Western Journalism reports, A photo taken inside a Veterans Administration hospital in Durham, North Carolina has gone viral, as it shows the tragic scene of two men being denied care. Retired Marine Stephen McMenamin and his wife, Hannah, were waiting at the medical center when they noticed two veterans struggling in the waiting room. The couple quickly posted photos of the incident on Facebook. The post has since been shared more than 120,000 times.


Jesse Lee, a Vietnam veteran, told WRAL-TV that he is the man in the wheelchair. He said he went to the VA for severe phantom pains after a leg amputation.

“Somebody in real bad pain should be seen,” Lee said. “It felt like a railroad spike was going through my foot. It’s like one of the worst pains you’ve ever felt in your life.”

The other man seemed to be suffering from “pneumonia-like” symptoms and was having trouble catching his breath.

According to McMenamin, the gentleman was “very shaky, trembling and he was asking for help. He was getting pretty desperate.”

Eventually, after being ignored by a particular VA nurse, the man stretched out on the floor until employees forced him get back up.

“That’s somebody’s dad, that’s somebody’s grandfather,” McMenamin said.

Medical center director DeAnne Seekins released a statement regarding the incident:

“It is an honor to serve America’s heroes and actions that do not align with our core values will not be tolerated,” Seekins said. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality care to the Veterans we serve and being responsive to our patient’s needs. Veterans deserve nothing less.”

“We take seriously any allegation of poor service. I was made aware of a regrettable incident that occurred in our Emergency Department over the weekend and am thankful someone cared enough to share the incident with us,” she added. “Our mission is to provide the highest level of health care to Veterans, so upon learning of the incident, I took swift action.”

The employee responsible has been removed and is now under internal investigation by the VA.
