When Congress returns from its extended August recess for an abbreviated September work period, it will have precious little time to wrap up work on and pass a massive package of veterans health and benefits legislation that has been stalled nearly a year. While there are minor disagreements among Members and Veterans Service Organizations alike over various provisions within this large collection of bills, the main sticking point with this package, as with most bills these days, is money. How can we, then, pay for all the good things we need to do for our veterans?
This is hour #1 when our guest was Michael Little, Director of Military and Veteran’s Benefits with the Association of the United States Navy. We had a great conversation about the military & PTSD.
