Lorton Letter: Fighting for Veterans

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

As a Vietnam veteran and as President of Asian Pacific American Veterans Association, I am appalled at the mismanagement of the Veterans Affairs Administration. Congresswoman Barbara Comstock has been a leader in the effort to address the unacceptable problems at the VA.

Comstock has consistently supported and voted for legislation that will improve the VA and make sure that servicemen and women get the care they deserve. She cosponsored the Faster Care for Veterans Act of 2016, which will help end the lengthy wait times veterans must endure when trying to get care at the VA.

These are just a few of the steps Comstock has taken to support our service members. She also supported a pay raise for our troops, voted for the Homes for Heroes Act of 2015, which will help combat veteran’s homelessness, and her office is always willing to assist a veteran who needs help navigating the complex maze of the federal bureaucracy.

Congresswoman Comstock has earned our support in November.
