Letter - James R. Alcorn

As a veteran one of my main concerns is the Republican desire and effort to privatize the Department of Veterans Affairs. This effort is touted as something that would be helpful to veterans, but in reality is aimed at helping Republican big donor corporations' bottom lines. The health care, pharmaceutical and insurance folks love the idea of getting a bigger piece of the veteran pie. I am, therefore, pleased to see that Lisa Ring recognizes this for the boondoggle it is, and consequently, I give her my complete endorsement for election to congress.

James R. Alcorn, Master Chief Petty Officer, USN (Retired)
