My Proud Service to Veterans
For more than 8 years I worked for the U.S. government taking care of veterans at the VA hospital in Columbia, MO and enjoyed every minute of it.
To this day, I cherish fond memories of those days and still remember some of my patientsí names. Veterans are truly a pleasure to take care of and deserve the best.
I salute them and each and every one of the men and women who put their lives at risk every day to defend our country so that we may live in peace and freedom.
As governor, I will do everything in my power at the state level to preserve and even improve veterans' benefits. Such facts are unacceptable: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-05-25/veterans-groups-decry-broken-disability-benefits-system.html
It is essential that these men and women are served well and that our military remains a competitive career so that we may continue to attract the very best to defend our country.
