    I was recently at Yountville for purposes of understanding the population and area since DGMC case managers refer patients to this facility. I also knew one of the victims. I was concerned for the lack of security on the campus and within the facility itself. I don’t want to get into specifics, but think that this type of shooting can happen at any VA center and the VA needs to be more secure in allowing access. Perhaps a review of security measures is necessary?
