Hey, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America has endorsed Obama's choice for the Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
The current Administration has made a habit of treating veterans badly, so this is a welcome change.
Here's what IAVA says
IAVA applauds President-elect Obama and the transition team for making this historic selection. General Shinseki has a record of courage and honesty, and is a bold choice to lead the VA into the future. The President-elect has demonstrated an understanding of the urgency of the issues facing America's veterans by making this announcement early. General Shinseki is widely-respected, honest and experienced. He is a man that has always put patriotism ahead of politics, and is held in high regard by veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. IAVA looks forward to supporting him to implement the historic change that is needed at the VA.
