What I Believe:
As a former US Army National Guard Captain, I have seen too many veterans who have served our country heroically return home with a lack of access to healthcare, sustainable housing and reintegration services. This is unacceptable, we can and must do more to treat our veterans with the dignity and respect they have earned.
What I Will Do:
We have to start with legislation that will provide healthcare to 76,000 veterans currently not covered due to the current administration’s refusal to accept Federal Medicare expansion funds. We must also further access to rapid quality treatment and a timely process for compensation related to injury – and access to affordable housing for our veterans.
