U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald has slipped into Minnesota under the radar.

Why did the secretary of veterans affairs come to the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital on March 24 and no one seems to know anything about it? He also is going to be at the St. Cloud VA hospital on Friday. Veterans have not been told about it and you have to dig very deep to find out about it. Why the big secret? Perhaps he is going to find out from the big wigs at the Minneapolis VA how nice things have been going for the veterans of our area. LOL. Then use it to defend the failed practices of the VA. Doing this under the radar prohibits veterans from our area from telling the actual truth about our local facilities. Secretary McDonald, come clean with the veterans of Minnesota. Why are you here and what's up your sleeve? Why the secret and why are you keeping it from us? Many of us live several hours from the Minneapolis VA hospital and would like to know why a town hall meeting is not part of your agenda.
