FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- For years Vietnam veteran Nelson Arnold and his wife Sue were looking for answers after he developed health problems.
He was sprayed with agent orange. Now he's missing a piece of his tongue.
"He's going through a personal war which is cancer of his tongue. It just seems like everyone wants to brush it off. Nobody wants to give us help," Sue Arnold said.
They came here to the Fort Wayne VA Medical Center to see what they could do.
"This is the first meeting we've been to. It was quite informative," Nelson Arnold said.
The town hall lets veterans speak directly to those in charge.
Paul Malone served in the Air Force, and recently found a health benefit helpful to him he believes could help others with unbearable pain.
"For 180 days, they're giving us eight treatments. I prefer them. Like myself, it's going to be a lifelong thing of acupuncture. There are other veterans who are going to have to have it for life. Do it for a year or six months, something. Like I had my fourth appointment yesterday. Now I gotta fight for it to get reinstated again. My accupunctress sent my paperwork in for me. It's just the fact that every time you turn around, you're fighting again, " Air Force veteran Malone explained.
Alexandria Sharpe with the VA said suggestions and feedback are always welcome.
"This is a chance for each one of them to let us know 'Hey this is what's going on. This is not working. This is working', so we can become better as a facility altogether," Public Affairs Officer Alexandria Sharpe said.
Sharpe said they hold events like this four times a year.
If you are experiencing any problems at all, she said don't wait for the town halls.
