President Barack Obama said Monday that programs to support veterans and their families remain a top priority for his administration, according to a Politico article.
Jennifer Epstein writes Obama honored the people who have served in the military at a Veterans Day ceremony held at Arlington National Cemetery.
“Even as we make difficult fiscal choices as a nation, we will keep making vital investments in our veterans,” Obama told the audience, according to the report.
He also vowed to continue efforts to help uninsured veterans acquire health insurance plans and reduce the claims backlog at the Veterans Affairs Department, Epstein writes.
“As a nation, we make sure we have the best led, most trained, best equipped military in the world, Obama added, Politico reports.
“We need to make sure we have as much passion for the best care, the best respected veterans in the world.”
