BREAKING: Veterans to @POTUS @realDonaldTrump: Elevate Veterans Issues in National Address

“Tonight, the majority of our members will be tuned in to the president’s speech to hear what he has to say about the state of our country. And they expect to hear veterans issues elevated on the national stage,” said Paul Rieckhoff, Founder and CEO of IAVA. “Our members around the globe want the president to address critical issues like mental health and suicide prevention, reforming the VA and veteran employment. As we have seen time and time again, veteran issues are American issues and are a matter of national security. Now is the time for renewed focus on the less than one percent of the country that has stepped serve in our most recent wars. Veterans aren’t political props; we’re deeply engaged citizens, and we will continue to hold the president and leaders in Washington accountable on their promises.”
