Tester, VA Secretary release details of Montana tour

(U.S. Senate) – Senator Jon Tester and Secretary of Veterans Affairs Bob McDonald today released details of their tour of Montana VA facilities on March 31 and April 1.

Tester and Secretary McDonald will meet with Montana veterans, VA employees, representatives from veterans service organizations, local health care providers and community leaders so the Secretary can better understand the challenges of Montana veterans.

Since his confirmation last August, Secretary McDonald has visited more than 100 VA facilities.

“VA Montana provides excellent care to veterans once they get through the door, but access continues to be the biggest obstacle many veterans face,” said Tester, Montana’s only member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “This tour will better inform VA officials in Washington, care providers in Montana, and myself as we work to make VA Montana all that it should be for the men and women who served our nation.”
