Backers show support of veterans’ facility

Tennessee Murfreesboro, TN - After allegations of physical and verbal abuse and neglect, veterans’ nursing home administrators and the families of veterans defended a Murfreesboro home Wednesday that has been the target of the charges.

One of those allegations was made by the family of David Lawson, a veteran who had a bed sore that became infected with maggots.

Thelma Harper (D-Nashville), a member of the Veterans Affairs Oversight Committee. "That's something I never want to see again."
