Improving Health Care and Providing
Jobs for Veterans
No one can
take care of a veteran like another veteran. This week I introduced S.
297, the Frontlines to Lifelines Act, to allow highly trained veterans
to care for their fellow veterans.
As Chairman of the
Military Construction and Veterans Affairs subcommittee, making sure our
veterans have the best care is my number one priority. This bill expands
a pilot program to hire combat medics, medical technicians and
corpsman straight from active duty service to care for their fellow veterans
at VA hospitals. VA Secretary Robert McDonald said the VA needs
another 26,000 new VA healthcare providers. This bill helps the VA meet its
shortfall and helps veterans get high-quality jobs by finding vets to
care for vets.
