KSDK – Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) has asked the state auditor to look into the Missouri Veterans Commission for what she calls an egregious failure to help veterans.
Wagner's investigation found at least two cases where the same employee failed to file benefit claims on behalf of local veterans.
One of the cases involved Ray Anderson, a World War II veteran living in a St. James nursing home.
Wagner says the commission's director hasn't answered whether these were isolated incidents, or whether there was a systemic problem affecting hundreds of Missouri veterans.
