David Shulkin on Homeland Security

 

 


Largest modernization effort at VA in decades

Under President Trump's leadership, VA is engaged in the largest transformation and modernization effort in decades. As part of this effort, the department is tackling head-on issues that have lingered for years, including accountability, whistleblower protection, improving transparency and customer service for Veterans and expanding suicide prevention and mental health care services.

As outlined in tonight's address, VA will have another groundbreaking year in expanding and improving our services for Veterans, particularly when it comes giving them more choices over their health care decisions, & improving yet again on the timeliness of our decisions on Veterans' benefits.

The whole country was moved when President Trump recognized young Preston Sharp for his dedication & leadership in planting over 40,000 flags at our nation's cemeteries to recognize America's heroes. He has inspired hundreds of volunteers across the country who are looking to expand his effort to all 50 states.

A voluntary military might not work without good VA care

"If we have a system that, when people are deciding if they want to serve their country, that they don't believe that when they get home, they have a system that's going to take care of them that they can rely upon, the approach towards having a voluntary Army and people who want to come and protect the country is at risk, and I think we have seen some recent reports that it's tougher to meet recruitment standards."
