Senator Mike Gravel enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1951 and served for three years as an adjutant in the Communications Services and as a Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps.
Our war veterans are not, as some would have it, a “special interest” but are our primary interest.
As President, Sen. Gravel would ensure that veterans receive full and unambiguous funding for their most important needs, including health care that is indexed to the increasing cost of care and medicine.
He would also make permanent the 100 percent disability ratings of those diagnosed as suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
He would also make sure that the VA system is fully financed and has sufficient welltrained personnel to provide the finest care that is available. As the senator says, “We can do no less and will do much more.”
