As the nation pauses to remember Veterans Day, the Veterans Affairs Department says it's making progress improving its health system.
FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:
A VA report says it has processed a million more appointments than last year, and three-million more than in 2014.
VA Secretary Bob McDonnell says the department is making it easier for veterans to sign up for services:
(McDonnell) "Now what have we seen? Well, we've got over a million new Veterans signed up in our health care system."
One of President-elect Donald Trump's campaign promises was to create a private White House hotline that would be staffed around the clock.
