Jim Nicholson on Homeland Security

Secretary of Veterans Affairs


VAs mission: serve veterans in life; honor them in death

Source: Mission statement of the V.A.Dept. , Nov 11, 2005

We cant pay the military enough for their sacrifice

Our military is the pride of our country. We cant pay them enough to do the things that we ask of them -- the sacrifices, the separations, the heroics. They answer the call for one reason: Their country needs them. Our country depends on them and they have never, ever let us down. We must not let them down, either.

President George Washington spoke of our obligations to the veterans of the Revolutionary War. As more of a common debt, he said, it is a debt of honor. I know you feel the same way, Mr. President. You have made the health and well-being of our veterans an important priority of your administration. I will proudly join you in keeping those commitments, should I be confirmed. I am eager for the work ahead and I am grateful for the confidence.
