    Tags: Veterans Issues

    This week, we remember the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and the loved ones left behind on that horrible day 23 years ago. As we mourn the worst act of homegrown terrorism in our country’s history, we also reflect on a term coined on April 19, 1995: the Oklahoma Standard. It is fitting that April is also National Volunteer Month, where volunteers are commended and Americans are encouraged to lend a helping hand. The Oklahoma Standard we all know is a norm that continues to spread not only... Read more

    Under President Obama, continued sequestration squashed the chances of military readiness. Air Force planes couldn’t fly. Navy ships couldn’t sail. Army troops couldn’t deploy. Our military didn’t have the resources necessary to be prepared for growing threats. Some veterans saw unbelievably long lines at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers while others didn’t even have access to the quality health care they have earned and deserve. Thankfully, there’s a new Commander-in-Chief in charge. Presi... Read more

    Congressman Mullin praised the change in policy put forth by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today which will allow veterans to be retroactively reimbursed for emergency treatment at non-VA facilities. “There is no quick fix to solve all of the issues inside the VA,” said Mullin. “However, we must continue to take steps forward to improve care for our veterans. This commonsense revision is one such step. I’m grateful to the VA for making these changes and bringing our country one step cl... Read more

    Veterans Day is a time to remember, honor, and celebrate the men and women who have served in our military. When I think of veterans who set an example for me, I always think of my papa, Kenneth ‘Cowboy’ Morris. My papa used to tell me about his stories, the friends he made, and what it was like to come back home. Sadly, we are losing our Greatest Generation and soon, they won’t be here to tell us their stories in person. Tom Brokaw, the longtime nightly news anchor, wrote a book in 1998 called ... Read more
