President Appoints Former Proctor & Gamble Executive To Head VA



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is selecting former Procter and Gamble executive Robert McDonald as his choice to be secretary of Veterans Affairs.

McDonald, 61, is a native of Gary, Ind., who grew up in Chicago. He was at the helm of Proctor and Gamble from July 2009 to July 2013.

If confirmed by the Senate, McDonald would replace Acting VA Secretary Sloan Gibson, who replaced Eric Shinseki as head of the agency.

Shinseki resigned May 30 after apologizing for the agency's problems.
