(KTVI) - The You Paid For It team comes to the aid of an Army Veteran who says St Louis VA dropped the ball on his case that nearly cost him his life.

He had been going to the Veterans Administration St Louis Healthcare System since 2010 because of severe headaches.

He says the medical help he got from VA doctors fell short and they didn't identify a life threatening problem.  He had a stroke on June 5th and was rush to a nearby hospital. He isn't sure if the VA will pay the Medical Bills from the Stroke.
He called the You Paid For It Team to get involved in his case.
Elliott Davis talked to VA's spokeswoman about the case. She vows that the organization within will investigate.
