Former U.S. Army Ranger Cole Schuler had fallen into a cycle of addiction. Last fall, when Schuler told his sister that he wanted to seek treatment for heroin abuse, she took him straight to the VA in Milwaukee where he was admitted for in-patient treatment. A few weeks later, a police officer knocked on her door to tell her that her brother was dead. He had overdosed on heroin in his room at the VA domiciliary at the Wisconsin VA where he was receiving treatment. Now, Schuler’s family is seeking answers as to how their son could have obtained and use drugs within the walls of a VA-run drug treatment facility.
