“The ideas to improve veteran care outlined by the workgroup have the potential to reverse the course Michigan has been on and begin to take us in the right direction. Our veterans have waited too long for real solutions. I’m pleased to see many of the ideas I’ve called for over the last few years incorporated into the report, such as building additional veterans homes and establishing a more comprehensive set of services to meet the diverse needs of our veterans.   

“Moving forward, I anticipate sustained action over the coming months and years, by the Legislature and the administration, to finally make things right in the way the state serves those who served our country. Our veterans have waited long enough.”
