OKLAHOMA CITY A military veteran says he's been physically abused at Oklahoma's Norman Veterans Center and staff members tried to intimidate him.
Mike Simmons spoke Tuesday to the House Veterans and Military Affairs Committee that's conducting an interim study into allegations of abuse at veterans centers statewide. Simmons says his abuse allegations went unreported to the state Department of Human Services and he wants DHS to have oversight of the centers.
No one from the Norman veterans center appeared at the meeting. Officials with some of the state's six other centers said they have policies requiring abuse allegations be reported to DHS.
