As a Marine, this issue hits close home.
Our veterans have sacrificed so much for our nation. Some have returned from war with visually shocking injuries that can be seen, others are suffering in silence, carrying injuries not obvious to the naked eye. These men and women are not getting the care they need, at the level they need, in the time they need it.
This is a crisis.
Despite billions that have already been spent, 22 veterans are still committing suicide every day.
I stand with President Trump on his initiative to fix the VA healthcare system. As your congressman, I will advocate tirelessly for better healthcare for our men and women who serve. All of our veterans deserve the highest quality treatment they can be given to treat their physical and mental injuries.
Veterans of our Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard don’t “deserve” great healthcare. They have earned it.
