Defend & Reform: Reforming Veterans Affairs
Preserving Promises to Nevada's Veterans
Our 2013 Policy Series sold out all five events, so please RSVP today.
Registration is free and dinner will be served.
Despite America's promise to provide care for its veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) continues to deliver results that are, at best, inadequate. Unfortunately, VA's Reno office is one of the slowest in the nation to complete a claim. Veterans have to wait close to 300 days to have their claims completed. Whether it's backlogged claims, bonuses for VA executives in charge of failing hospitals, or recent reports of bureaucratic paper shuffling to cover up incompetency, one thing is clear: VA is failing in its most basic mission, and something needs to change.
On Thursday, March 20th, Concerned Veterans for America's Nevada Chapter will welcome local and national experts with diverse viewpoints who will explore constructive, actionable solutions to bring accountability and better results to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Discussion will be led by Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, Fox News contributor, and veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Discussion and Q & A with moderator:
Host of KDWN "The Voice of Common Sense"
CEO, Concerned Veterans for America
Contributor, Fox News Channel
Advisor, Concerned Veterans for America
Special Assistant to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (2001-2009)
Additional panelists named very soon.
