VA Secretary Addresses 65th Annual AMVETS Convention
Date:8/13/2009

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki spoke to AMVETS from around the country gathered in New Orleans for the 65th annual national convention. Shinseki assured the audience that the VA will succeed in building a new VA Medical Center in New Orleans. The city has been without a true VA health care hub since Hurricane Katrina. Shinseki also discussed the President’s bold plans to improve VA care. AMVETS gathers each year to discuss issues facing today’s veterans and to elect new national officers.

Shinseki spoke to hundreds of veterans in New Orleans as part of the 65th annual AMVETS National Convention. Veterans from across the country have converged on New Orleans to tend to the business of one of the nation’s largest and most inclusive veterans service organizations.

Shinseki, President Obama’s top advisor on veterans’ issues and a retired Army Chief of Staff, discussed issues critical to today’s veterans’ community and laid out his vision for a VA capable of meeting the needs of all veterans.

“President Obama has charged me with transforming the VA into a high-performing 21st century organization,” said Shinseki. “It will be a different organization from the one that exists today—an organization that adapts to new realities, leverages new technologies, and is prepared to serve veterans, past and present, with renewed commitment.”

Over the first seven months of the Obama Administration, the President has laid out an ambitious plan to tackle a variety of veterans’ issues—an agenda which AMVETS vocally supports. However, AMVETS will continue to be vigilant, ensuring that the plan comes to fruition.

“AMVETS was excited to host Secretary Shinseki and to hear what he
