Manchin: May know about V.A. Clinic in Mercer County in 90 days

Making the transition from military life back to private life can sometimes be challenging.

Senator Joe Manchin met with veterans at concord university this afternoon to hear about their difficulties in making the shift and to hear how concord is making the transition easier.

He also talked about a possible V.A.Clinic in Mercer County.

Although the money has been set aside for the project, Manchin points out it's not a done deal.

"With all the tough sequestering and all the cutbacks and with budgets we are all concerned and anything could fall through the cracks at any time.  I would hope within the next 90 days that we would hear something and hopefully it will be positive. I really believe I knew we made the case. I knew we showed the value of this clinic and basically given the services to people locally. I knew we sold that," said Senator Manchin, (D)-West Virginia.

 The Concord University visit is part of Manchin's "Common Sense Tour" that will take him across the state this week.
