Luttrell: If Senators Used VA Doctors, 'Problems Would Probably Get Fixed'
Luttrell also spoke to Fox and Friends about the hit movie and Memorial Day.
Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, the basis for the hit film "Lone Survivor," spoke to Fox and Friends this morning about the VA scandal and his thoughts on Memorial Day.
Luttrell said he believes the overall VA situation is overwhelming. "It's frustrating the level of care and the way it's presented."
He also talked about a potential solution that involves giving veterans cards to use at their local hospital.
"If you have a combat veteran ....that got messed up and needs the care he needs you just hand him one of those cards and he walks in and gets it [medical attention]."
The retired Navy SEAL said he believes if senators had to go to the VA for their care the situation would probably get fixed.
Though Memorial Day is getting easier for the retired Navy SEAL, he says he doesn't need just "one day" to remember all his teammates and buddies.
One of the hardest things he had to deal with after surviving a 2005 Taliban ambush did not involve combat or the mental side of things, but it was being separated from all of his teammates.
"That's the hole that can't be filled," Luttrell said.
