"I am grateful to Lt. Governor Dewhurst for giving me the opportunity to serve on the Select Committee on Veterans Health. The formation of this committee is extremely timely as the VA has recently released new rules for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) claims. Adequate mental health care and improving medical services for our wounded warriors are critical issues as our troops are under the tremendous strain of two foreign wars."
"As Military City U.S.A., San Antonio is home to state-of-the-art medical facilities for our soldiers from Brooke Army Medical Center to the amazing Center for the Intrepid. I am excited to begin working with my colleague Senator Jeff Wentworth and fellow committee members to ensure our wounded warriors receive the very best care for both their visible and invisible wounds."
