The American Legion reports that Sen. John McCain recently attacked the nation's largest and most influential veterans' service organizations by alleging they were opposed to the Veterans Choice Program that created a new, but temporary, option for veterans to receive health care from non-Department of Veterans Affairs providers. The senator's comments specifically targeted The American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and Disabled American Veterans. All three organizations issued a joint statement in response to McCain's comments. Their statement is available on the American Legion website.
