El Paso County has the biggest concentration of veterans in Colorado, but government statistics show its VA clinic ranks near the bottom nationwide at getting them in for health care within 30 days.

Statistics reviewed by The Associated Press showed more than 10 percent of the appointments at the clinic from Sept. 1 to Feb. 28 took at least 31 days to schedule, missing the Department of Veterans Affairs' timeliness goal.
