On assignment: One disabled vet’s nightmare journey

This is Steven Massong, viagra buy an Army veteran who went into a VA hospital in 2005 for a routine procedure and ended up having most of his right foot and scrotum removed. That was only the beginning of his bureaucratic nightmare. He has spent the past 9 years battling the Department of Veterans Affairs trying to get disability benefits.

I traveled to Las Vegas last month to meet Massong and take some photos of him at his home. These pictures were taken in his bedroom where he told me he spends most of his time — day and night.

The Project On Government Oversight, click the organization where I work, tells his story here.
