(LAFAYETTE) - U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly says administrators at Indiana's VA hospitals have told him they don't have the same kind of troubles as the 26 veterans facilities across the country facing complaints about long waits and backlogs.

Donnelly said during a visit Monday to Lafayette for Memorial Day ceremonies that officials must review "every single detail" of upcoming reports about allegations of falsified records and treatment delays. The Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers serve nearly 9 million veterans.

Donnelly tells the Journal & Courier that Congress will "move heaven and earth" to make sure that veterans get the medical care they deserve.

Donnelly is also pushing a measure for annual mental health assessments for military personnel in an attempt to reduce the number of suicides.
