 Statement by Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin —  State of the Union

                Under President Trump’s leadership, Veterans Affairs is engaged in the largest transformation and modernization effort in decades. As part of this effort, the Department is tackling head-on issues that have lingered for years, including accountability, whistleblower protection, improving transparency and customer service for US Vets and expanding suicide prevention and mental health care services.

                 As outlined in tonight’s address, Veterans Affairs will have another groundbreaking year in expanding and improving our services for Vet, particularly when it comes giving them more choices over their health care decisions, and improving yet again on the timeliness of our decisions on Veterans’ benefits.

                 The whole country was moved when President Trump recognized young Preston Sharp for his dedication and leadership in planting over 40,000 flags at our nation’s cemeteries to recognize America’s heroes. He has inspired hundreds of volunteers across the country who are looking to expand his effort to all 50 states. Well done, Preston — you’re an example to all Americans and everyone who works at VA.Gov.
