Congressional candidate says we have a responsibility to vets.
Keystone Heights, Fla., July 2, 2020 – Gavin Rollins, Republican candidate for Florida’s Third Congressional District, today said his commitment to fight for the interests of veterans will include a dedicated staff member to help facilitate healthcare and disability claims. Rollins is himself a veteran of the Global War on Terror and a VFW member.
“I will fight tirelessly for our veterans,” said Rollins. “That means I will dedicate a staff member to veteran’s issues to ensure those who served our nation honorably are getting the care they deserve. If you’re a veteran and you’re waiting in a long line for healthcare, you should be given a voucher to go out in the private market and get the care you deserve. When it comes to disability claims, veterans deserve a quick answer. Right now, the federal government takes way too long to let our veterans know their status. Veterans served our country honorably. We have a responsibility to give them timely responses and the care they need.”
Rollins also vowed restraint when it comes to foreign conflicts.
“I will never support sending our sons and daughters into foreign wars without a clear objective and reason to be there,” said Rollins. “It would have to be an imminent threat to the safety and welfare of our society for me to ever vote to authorize sending American soldiers into harm’s way.”
Rollins, a Clay County commissioner, high school teacher and captain in the Florida National Guard, is seeking to replace retiring Congressman Ted Yoho in Florida’s Third Congressional District.
