Army vet gets jail sentence for VA hospital threat

Harmon pleaded guilty in January to attempted possession of a firearm on federal property with the intent to commit a crime.

Police at the VA hospital in Marion arrested Harmon last October after he told a nurse by telephone that he was armed and was "going to fill that place with lead."

Prosecutors say authorities found a loaded semiautomatic handgun, a magazine filled with 13 bullets and 13 loose rounds of ammunition in Harmon's truck.
