The Jewish War Veterans of the USA is extremely pleased with the Senate’s quick, bipartisan confirmation of Robert Wilkie to be the 10th Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs. As acting secretary, Robert Wilkie and his staff have reached out to veteran service organizations and have worked to provide needed support. He was a key player in moving the VA Mission Act through Congress. Mr. Wilkie recently participated with the Veterans Day National Committee, giving his leadership to an important planning group. JWV congratulates Secretary Wilkie!
