WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Chairman Miller released the following statement in reaction to VA Sec. Bob McDonald’s false claim that he served in special operations forces:
“I’m disappointed in Sec. McDonald’s comments. After a rough couple of weeks that also included inflated claims of accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs, I hope Sec. McDonald will redouble his efforts to ensure his statements – and those of all VA officials – are completely accurate. This is the only way the department can regain the trust of the veterans and taxpayers it is charged with serving.” - Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
