Selnick, an Air Force veteran, says he was there as the Trump White House had to fight to get liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) to support the Mission Act. With Tester facing re-election once again in 2024, Selnick and Concerned Veterans for America (CVA)-Montana State Director Chris Enget are hoping they can twist Tester's arm again.
A warning to our fellow veterans here in Montana: here we go again. Look at how hard we had to fight for the ability to fire bad actors that were mistreating veterans in the VA, and now the Biden Administration is trying to walk it back.
The head of the VA in Montana was "sacked," but more changes are needed at the top of the Veterans Administration bureaucracy. That was the conclusion that I shared along with our good Navy veteran friend George Blackard, who is a former Vice Commander of the American Legion here in Montana.
Remember when liberal Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) falsely attacked an Iraq war veteran and Navy Admiral by the name of Ronny Jackson? The former White House doctor and Navy Admiral is now a candidate for Congress.
We talked about wait times at the VA, the upcoming implementation of the Mission Act, why the Montana VA leadership continues to see such a high rate of turnover, and the president's efforts to combat veteran suicide.
