DQ 1: In recent news, heated debate among lawmakers persists regarding the condition of the current Veteran’s Administration (VA) and its role to provide significantly better health care and
shorter wait times for this growing population segment. Because many of our Veterans require both physical and psychological attention (primarily related to PTSD), discuss how state and national
policies should adapt now and in the future toward helping our Vets better assimilate back into society–body, mind, and spirit. Do you advocate for privatization of the VA system or any social
entitlement, such as Medicare or Medicaid as a method for improvement? Explain.
