The Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs recently held a hearing in Washington, D.C., to seek testimonies from local veterans' service organizations (VSOs) on more than a dozen draft bills that focus on critical issues affecting veterans and their families. The bills focus on several hot-button issues that range from improving military and veteran caregiver services, to establishing more accountability and whistleblower protection for Department of Veterans Affairs employees. American Legion National Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Division Director Louis Celli testified on the Legion's behalf. A video of and testimonies from the hearing are available on the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs website.
