Trump promises to make veteran care a priority


NASHVILLE, Tenn.– President-elect Donald Trump promises to make veteran care a priority. His plan for the for 100 days in office includes Veterans Affairs Reform, a vision with a 10 point plan.

According to his strategy on his website:

Ensure our veterans get the care they need wherever and whenever they need it. No more long drives. No more waiting backlogs. No more excessive red tape. Just the care and support they earned with their service to our country.

Support the whole veteran, not just their physical health care, but also by addressing their invisible wounds, investing in our service members’ post-active duty success, transforming the VA to meet the needs of 21st century service members, and better meeting the needs of our female veterans.

Make the VA great again by firing the corrupt and incompetent VA executives who let our veterans down, by modernizing the VA, and by empowering the doctors and nurses to ensure our veterans receive the best care available in a timely manner.

Fox 17’s Mikayla Lewis caught up with mid-state groups already helping female veterans from the inside-out through Dress for Success’ “Salute for Success.” In two years, the two-week annual event has suited nearly 100 female veterans for their next chapter in civilian life with the help of local agencies like the YWCA and Operation Stand Down in Nashville. Watch the video to see how the Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner, Many-Bears Grinder helped a fellow veteran prepare for life in social work and how they feel about Trump’s plan.
