Isabella Valentina will be addressing her campaign’s stance on military and veterans:

Quote

Military and Veterans

We support the use of military readiness and diplomacy to deter war. Military force should be used as a last resort and in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. A strong military is essential to protect the freedoms of this nation, and to protect those nations who align themselves with our democratic values and call themselves our allies.

 

We support our men and women in the armed forces because service to our country is the greatest act of self-sacrifice and patriotism.  My brother, Angel, served 10 years in the US military.  His example and service to his country is an inspiration to me.  My campaign supports the full complement of current benefits and services which veterans and their families receive; however, we also support expanding those benefits to include easier access to necessary medical and behavioral services including but not limited to rehabilitative care for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We support fully staffing the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) so that there are no backlogs in providing service in the Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration, or the National Cemeteries Administration.  Efforts to make the VA more efficient will be a key focus of our goals to improve the lives of veterans.

We support the use of medical marijuana and holistic medicine in VA health facilities to reduce the use of opiates.  We support legislation that provides proactive measures to protect service members from domestic violence and sexual assault.  We support granting “Honorable Discharges” to those veterans who were discharged because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and inclusive services to LGBT veterans and their families.  The military should be more open to LGBT members as they can be just as patriotic as their cisgender, straight military members.

We support establishing Veterans Advocates in the Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) to ensure that our veterans receive the full benefits that they are entitled to by law, in a timely manner without exploitation or harassment.  This example will be one that our entire nation should model after.

We support the establishment of a “Nevada Veterans Fund”

to provide financial assistance to Veterans and Military Families awaiting their VA benefits.

We support increases in programs for at-risk vets, including extra support for elderly and homeless Veterans.

We support the expansion of the US Department of Energy “Solar Ready Vets” program to Nevada in order to educate Veterans and Military Families about work in the solar energy field.

We oppose the privatization of any portion of the Department of Veterans Affairs.  This would not be advantageous for veterans who would be exploited by the private industries who care little about their treatment and more about how they can profit off of the servicemen and women.

This campaign is about uplifting our veterans and continuing to strengthen our military to ensure peace and prosperity here in the United States as well as the world.

These PRs are becoming a little spammy. It's also not as impressive to simply copy and paste from RL, even if it's from a great source.
