Athlete of the Week

  • Strengthening government committment to care for veterans

    By Alison Lundergan Grimes, candidate for U.S. Senate

    Our military heroes make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and we owe so much to every veteran who has worn our nation’s uniform.

    Like all Kentuckians, I am horrified by reports of deadly neglect of patients at hospitals operated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Although a full investigation is still in progress, it is apparent that at least several dozen former service personnel died while awaiting treatment at VA facilities.

    This situation is intolerable.
