U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), also of Manhattan and a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, met with the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Bob McDonald, in Sen. Moran’s Washington, D.C. office Wednesday. McDonald is a veteran and the former Proctor & Gamble CEO.
“This afternoon, I had the opportunity to meet with the nominee for Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Mr. Bob McDonald,” Sen. Moran said. “I was impressed by his candor, sincerity and commitment to serving our nation’s veterans. Mr. McDonald shares my dedication to seeing that veterans receive the best quality care they deserve from an agency that is worthy of their service, and I plan to support his nomination. The VA bureaucracy must be dismantled, and Mr. McDonald is focused and ready to take on the many challenges that lie ahead. I look forward to working with Mr. McDonald when he is confirmed as the new VA Secretary.”
If confirmed by the Senate, McDonald will become Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Department of Veterans Affairs was established in 1930 to assist all veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
