NASSAU COUNTY -

Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for easier access to health care for veterans in Nassau County.

The senator wrote a letter to the VA on Monday pushing for approval of construction of an outpatient facility on the North Shore of Nassau County.

Schumer said many older vets cannot make the trip to Northport VA Medical Center on their own, and may not be able to afford a car service to get there.
