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.
