"OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA"

One veteran’s nightmare

This is Steven Massong. He went into a VA hospital for a routine procedure and ended up losing most of his right foot and scrotum. And that was just the beginning of his ordeal in the broken VA system. He has spent the past 9 years trying to get disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. I met him at his home in Las Vegas to take photos for a report  published on the Project On Government Oversight website.

See more photos from the shoot here.
