A couple posted photos on Facebook and said veterans waited for hours in pain inside the Durham VA Medical Center.

Stephen McMenamin, a former U.S. Marine, was there for treatment, and said his wife took the pictures because she “found it upsetting.”

McMenamin said a veteran who was lying on the ground was using his bag of medication for a pillow after being denied an available reclining chair.

“The nurse started yelling at him, telling him he can’t do that,” McMenamin said. “He’s, like, ‘I can’t get up and I won’t get up. I will be here until you can see me. Can I please have a blanket?’”
