Editorial: Serving our Veterans

August 20, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, the Veterans Affairs representatives held an outreach meeting in Tifton.

A good number of Veterans showed up, and voiced their opinions about the ways they thought the VA could better serve their constituents. They were not shy about telling officials what they saw as problems.

We often get calls from Vets who have trouble getting the help they need. Many times they just need help cutting through the red tape.

The men and women who need the VA have done what only one percent of Americans are willing to do: Put their life on the line to protect the rest of us.

We salute the VA for their outreach efforts, but now we call on them to put into practice, the solutions for the problems identified.

We must make sure every Veteran gets all the help they need.
