An update on a story we told you about Monday. A Marine Veteran, who complained he was having trouble getting heart medication from the Department of Veterans Affairs was treated at a hospital and VA Clinic Tuesday.

Vietnam Veteran Willie Ross told us he had been without prescribed heart medication since Friday. Tuesday morning he went to Phoebe for emergency treatment, and then in the  afternoon was treated at the Albany VA Clinic.

Ross told us he was released from Phoebe on the 21st, after spending a week being treated for congestive heart failure.

V-A officials from the Dublin center said they are doing all they can to resolve Ross' health issues and complaints and get him his heart medicine.
