SAN DIEGO – U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement in honor of Veterans Day. Rep. Peters is participating in the Mt. Soledad Veterans Day ceremony later this afternoon.
“Veterans Day is a time to thank our veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice to our country. San Diego is a proud military town that embraces its role in our nation’s security.
“As we continue reforming the culture of complacency at the Department of Veterans Affairs, I am focused on ways to improve mental health care and give veterans new ways to access care when the VA is failing them. As veterans in San Diego know, we cannot wait for Congress to get its act together. Instead we must continue to connect veterans with effective services and resources as they return to civilian life.
“We must also renew our commitment to ending the stigma around mental health care and to ending the chronic homelessness that too many veterans in San Diego are facing.”
