"It is our duty to provide care for our troops during battle and when they return home," said Senator Murray. "Unfortunately, from a lack of body armor and adequate health care to terrible living conditions and bureaucratic nightmares, President Bush has failed to fulfill this duty. Senate Democrats have had enough of the President's broken promises to our servicemen and women. The HEROES plan will work to reverse these failures and to provide the care our troops deserve, from the battlefield to the local VA and everywhere in between."
Through oversight and legislative solutions the HEREOS plan aims to force the administration to establish a system that meets the needs of our troops and finds comprehensive solutions for our service members.
