Washington – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) released the following statement commending the confirmation of David Shulkin for Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs:
“I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Shulkin to expand access to service dogs for veterans with PTSD. During that time, I found him hardworking and capable—and completely devoted to improving the health and well-being of our veterans. Clearly the Senate agreed, as their unanimous vote to confirm him shows.
