SEMINOLE, Fla. (AP) - Hundreds of military veterans from the Tampa Bay area have met with their congressman to criticize the quality of care they receive at Veterans Affairs health care centers.              

Veterans met with Congressman David Jolly and his aides on Tuesday.    

After filling out an 11-question intake form, veterans could talk with case workers to help resolve issues with records and wait times.            

Legal help also was available and Jolly met with veterans individually in his office.              

Jolly serves on the house veteran's affairs committee. He said he will take what he hears from the meetings with him back to Washington to offer further reforms.
