ST. LOUIS ( -- Going into Memorial Day weekend, St. Louis-area veterans are reporting an improvement in VA services.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill visited the Korean War Memorial Friday in Forest Park to announce the results of a yearly survey filled out by local veterans.

This survey began in 2011 when only 40 percent of vets said they would not recommend St. Louis' VA services. Now, that number is down to just 16 percent.

"Making sure those who have sacrificed so much receive the quality care and benefits they've earned is a sacred duty-and one I'll always fight to uphold," said McCaskill, a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "I started this survey years ago to help give our veterans a louder voice-and the feedback we've received from thousands of Missouri veterans has helped us hold the VA accountable, track specific areas of concern, and highlight what's going well and what can be improved."
