“Our veterans and their families have made great sacrifices to keep our nation safe and free,” said Senator Perdue. “As Americans, we have a responsibility to uphold the commitments we made to our veterans, and it’s a job I take very seriously. This Veterans Day, I particularly want to thank my partner in the Senate, Senator Johnny Isakson. As a veteran himself, Johnny has led the charge to improve efficiency and accountability at the VA. His efforts are making a difference for veterans across the country. The Department of Veterans Affairs has removed over 8,000 bureaucrats for not doing their jobs, and we’ve allowed veterans to seek out private medical care if they are unable to get it at the VA. I join all Georgians in saluting those who have answered the call to serve, both past and present.”
