Consistent with the Veterans Choice Accountability Act of 2014, President Barack Obama recently sent to Congress his formal response to the Commission on Care. The President said "a sacred covenant exists between Veterans and this nation: servicemen and servicewomen take an oath to protect our country, and in turn, our nation pledges to take care of them when they leave the service. The Commission's work to evaluate the Veterans Affairs health care system is important in ensuring we keep our promise to our Veterans." The President's letter to Congress is available on the White House website. The final report by the Commission on Care is available online. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald statement on the final report is available on the VA website.
