Sanders Welcomes DAV Report on Women Veterans

BURLINGTON, Vt., – Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today after the Disabled American Veterans released a report on the needs of women veterans:

“The Disabled American Veterans report provides critical information to ensure that we meet the needs of the fastest-growing group of veterans in America. As women play an increasingly critical role in our military operations, we have an obligation to honor their service and sacrifice when they return home and to help their transition to civilian life.  I thank DAV for its dedication and commitment to serving all of our veterans and look forward to continuing to work with them on these important issues.”
