<p>In an interview with The Huffington Post published on Monday night, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald admitted to falsely claiming in a segment on January 30&#39;s <em>CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley</em> on January 30 that he had served in U.S. Army Special Forces during his service from mid-1970s to 1980.</p>

<p>McDonald retracted what he had told a homeless veteran in Los Angeles by saying, in part, that <strong>&ldquo;I have no excuse,&rdquo; &ldquo;I was not in special forces,&rdquo;</strong> and had <strong>&ldquo;no intent in any way to describe my record any different than it is.&rdquo;</strong></p>
