AMVETS National Headquarters, April 3, 2018 – AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk today sent a letter to President Donald Trump, urging him to reconsider his decision to install an outsider with no previous VA experience as acting secretary, a move that bypassed current VA Deputy Secretary Thomas Bowman, despite federal regulations predesignating him for the position.

AMVETS has been a nonpartisan advocate for veterans and their families for more than 70 years. amvets.org
