Sen. Bernie Sanders says health care for Vermont military veterans is going to get better.
Currently about 8,600 veterans receive care from Vermont’s five community clinics that are satellites of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction.
The clinics are located in Colchester, Brattleboro, Rutland, Newport and Bennington.
Sanders says the Rutland clinic will soon be moving to a new, larger location closer to the downtown.
The Colchester clinic is the state’s largest and it is nearing capacity. But Sanders says that facility is going to either expand or move to a larger space so it can double its capacity.
