Concerned Veterans for America to Hold “Honoring America’s Commitment” Rally on April 13 in Phoenix
Event Marking One-Year Anniversary of Phoenix VA Scandal Asks: “What’s Changed?”
Phoenix, Ariz. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) will hold a rally titled “Honoring America’s Veterans: What’s Changed Since the Phoenix VA Scandal?” to mark the one-year anniversary of the Phoenix VA hospital scandal, and reflect on solutions to improve veterans’ health care, at 6:00 pm on Monday, April 13 at Steele Indian School Park.
The event will feature remarks from Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, Darin Selnick, Senior Veterans Affairs Advisor for CVA and Executive Director of CVA’s Fixing Veterans Health Care Taskforce, and Dan Caldwell, Legislative and Political Director for CVA. The speakers will cover the history of the VA health care system, including last year’s scandal at the Phoenix VA hospital, and policy proposals to fix the delivery of care to veterans. The free event will also include a complimentary dinner from Joe’s Real BBQ.
CVA’s Fixing Veterans Health Care Taskforce released a policy report in February featuring the Veterans Independence Act, which proposed concrete reforms to bring quality, timely care to veterans and hold the VA accountable for its performance.
