Quotes

...legislation to improve VA mental health services, because we have to do more to combat the tragedy of veteran suicide," said Congressman Delaney. "The Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act helps upgrade our mental health care services, expands access to care by improving the diagnostic process, and adds more oversight and accountability so that we can ensure that we're doing absolutely everything we can to help America's veterans. Clay Hunt's story is heart-wrenching, because he was clearly such an exceptional man who served his country, worked to help others and simply didn't receive the care he was owed. Clay was frustrated with the bureaucracy he faced and wasn't properly diagnosed until it was too late. We absolutely have to take action to prevent further tragedy, I hope that we can continue the bipartisan momentum behind this important suicide prevention legislation and pass these vital reforms."
"Our military veterans are among the most deserving of support and assistance," Zoeller said in the release. "It is shameful that groups would pose as nonprofits benefiting veterans and deceive consumers into donating. This is an egregious violation of the public's trust."
...streamlined process that is veterans-centric," said Lauren Augustine, the legislative associate for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. "... The DOD is moving toward that, they have been moving toward that, and we'll ensure they continue moving toward that."
"This inequality for those who wore the uniform of the United States Armed Services and their families is unacceptable, and we, as the committee charged with overseeing the laws to serve their needs, have a duty to act."
