What Queen Is Fighting For!
- While being apart of the service it will be mandatory for mental health screenings and counseling to help reduce the risk of PTSD.
- Creating a transition career path period for members who have completed their service terms. This will give Veterans a guarantee job/career placement straight out of service.
- Universal Housing for all Veterans this will decrease homelessness amongst Veterans.
- Health Care For All. Veterans will qualify for health benefits. Their history while in service will have no effect on their health benefits. This will give our veterans the ability to utilize and benefit from the resources and services that is offered to them.
- Assign a mandatory 90 day social worker to all Veterans when leaving service. This will help Veterans with re-entering back into society.
