Letter to the Editor: Disregard for Veterans

“The Pact Act is bipartisan legislation that helps the VA work better for veterans who were injured by burn pits or other toxic exposures. The VFW and American Legion support the legislation. It passed the Senate with only 14 NO votes. One no vote came from Senator John Thune… We can elect Brian Bengs, a small-town guy who became an Air Force JAG Lieutenant Colonel who served and defended our nation and wants to be a champion for rural citizens, or we can re-elect a career politician who pays lip service to veterans but is out of touch with their needs and the needs of rural South Dakotans. I’ll be voting to hire the veteran.”
