Military veterans are to be honored and respected.
The best way to do that is to be aware of the help they need and make sure that every Veteran’s Administration doctor, clinic and hospital, all over the country, is run efficiently to meet the needs of veterans. Many people who are elected to Congress want the most choicecommittee appointments so they can buttress their resume, making re-election less difficult. Not me. I want to serve on a committee that will directly effect the lives or our military veterans. As the daughter, sister, mother and grandmother of those who have served, I see this as a sacred responsibility.
