Sinema for Congress Releases New Ad: “Vets”

 

PHOENIX – Sinema for Congress today released a new ad, “Vets,” focused on Kyrsten’s work to hold the VA accountable and get Arizona veterans the care they’ve earned.

 

“I come from a military family,” said Sinema in the ad. “Every day these heroes risk their lives to protect us. We have a moral obligation to provide the care and benefits our vets were promised and deserve.”

 

When news broke about the tragedies at the Phoenix VA, Kyrsten took immediate action. Since June of 2014, her office has held nine resource clinics for Arizona veterans and their families. Kyrsten’s team has helped more than 1,700 veterans access benefits and care.

 

Kyrsten also introduced and passed legislation, the Sergeant Daniel Somers Classified Veterans Access to Care Act, to fix VA mental health care and ensure veterans with classified experiences have appropriate access to mental health services.

 

Watch “Vets” here.
