AMVETS’ Statement Regarding Denis McDonough Nomination for VA Secretary

Statement from AMVETS National Executive Director Joe Chenelly:

We are surprised by reports the President-Elect Joe Biden intends to nominate Denis McDonough to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We were expecting a veteran, maybe a post-9/11 veteran. Maybe a woman veteran. Or maybe a veteran who knows the VA exceptionally well. We are looking forward to hearing from President-Elect Biden on his thinking behind this nomination.

AMVETS, which is also known as American Veterans, is the most inclusive Congressionally-chartered veterans service organization open to representing the interests of more than 19 million veterans and their families. We are veterans serving veterans since 1944.
