As a veteran, I fully understand the commitment and sacrifice each serviceman and servicewoman makes for our great nation. Our veterans are heroes and deserve our respect and gratitude. However, for many veterans coming home, it is a difficult and painful transition.
We must keep our promise to those who answered our nation’s call by ensuring they have access to the highest quality health care. Regardless of when they served, I believe that every soldier, sailor, Marine and airmen receive our utmost attention. Whether your service was in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, or Iraq/Afghanistan, each venue has unique problems that need specific solutions. I will also keep my promise to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as our POWs and MIAs.
