3OYS: War vet says VA is 'taking him for a ride'Posted: Updated:
APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. -- Bruce Klein enjoys retirement these days. But, when the 72-year-old sits back and relaxes, he finds himself thinking about the time he spent in both the Vietnam and Korean wars.
"I got to know a lot and appreciate a lot of South Korean people," Klein said. "Both soldiers and civilians."
Klein proudly served as an officer in the U.S Army and eventually left the military. Being a war veteran comes with benefits, like receiving health care from the VA hospital in downtown Phoenix. It's a good thing, too, because back in October 2013, Klein said he thought he was having a heart attack.
