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. *READ MORE ABOUT S. 297* [link 2] To learn more about my work on your behalf of veterans, please visit my website [link 3].

Improving Health Care and Providing Jobs for Veterans

Dear unity,

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.

Very Truly Yours,
