Senator David Perdue Comments On Our Responsibility To Our Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on the Senate’s actions to increase accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs:

“Our responsibility to our veterans does not end when we welcome them home from the frontlines. In recent years, however, the Department of Veterans Affairs has failed in its commitment to the women and men who served our country. Little accountability within the VA has threatened veterans’ access to the continuous care they need and deserve. Today that changes, thanks to the hard work of Chairman Isakson and the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. We are empowering the VA to take overdue action to increase accountability and prioritize the women and men who sacrificed everything to defend our freedom.”
