RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The top brass in the Veterans Administration paid a visit to Reno Tuesday. VA Secretary Robert McDonald met with patients, employees and leaders of the Reno VA Regional Office before taking the podium at the 69th gathering of the Blinded Veterans Association.

The Secretary addressed the shortcomings of the VA and Veterans care in general, saying he is doing his best to recruit the right kind of people to improve the system. McDonald says communication and transparency is key to insuring vets get the care they deserve.

"Close collaboration and ongoing dialogue are priorities. No organization can operate successfully in a vacuum, together we can move VA forward with the urgency that the current situation demands. And with the balance reforms we'll ensure that the VA is the provider of choice for Veterans from Maine to Manila," Secretary McDonald said.

McDonald's visit to Reno comes on the heels of some strong criticism from Nevada's congressional delegation--Senator Dean Heller called the Silver State's regional VA office the worst in the nation.
