Veterans


I know we have a responsibility to take care of those who have served in our military. As the proud daughter of a Vietnam veteran who depends on the VA healthcare system, I will fight back against any attempt to privatize the VA and take care away from our veterans. I will ensure our veterans have the best physical and mental health care, housing assistance.


PRIORITIES:

  • Oppose and reverse the efforts to privatize the VA healthcare system
  • Increase funding for the VA system
  • Improve access for rural areas by increasing the number of care providers, including virtual meeting and mobile care unit options
  • Hire staff to fill vacant positions in the VA system, and improve staff retention
  • Improve advocacy for new members to help them access all their care options
  • Reduce suicide through peer and group programs, and emergency counseling
  • Improve access to career and technical education, and career counseling
