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, and career and technical education to help them re-enter civilian life.
