Support for Our Veterans
One of the biggest issues plaguing Michigan Veterans who need immediate action or care is the shortage of Veteran
Benefit Experts, or Veteran Service Officers.
In fact, Michigan ranks 48th in the nation, which is unacceptable. Of more than 600,000 veterans in Michigan, the state has roughly 135 Veteran Service Officers. VSOs navigate the red tape of the federal bureaucracy to help veterans obtain the benefits they earned for their service.
As a Republican, I do not believe in growing government or bureaucracy. But as the national defense is an appropriate role for the federal governor, we need to ensure we keep our promise to our veterans.
