Las Vegas, Nev. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) today met by teleconference with Welcoming All Veterans Everywhere (WAVE) to discuss challenges that Nevada’s rural veterans are facing throughout the state.
“I am grateful for today’s virtual conversation to discuss issues facing veterans across Nevada. At a difficult time for all Americans, I want to make sure that the those who have served their country get the support they need, from medical prescriptions to housing to veterans benefits. I continue to fight in the U.S. Senate for resources to help veterans and family members, who have sacrificed so much for their fellow Americans.”
Senator Cortez Masto has continually advocated for resources for Nevada’s veterans, including additional investments in veteran-owned businesses, funding for students who are military veterans, and virtual peer support programs for those struggling with mental health concerns. She has also called for action to investigate delays to the United States Postal Service that have prevented veterans in Nevada from receiving prescription drugs in a timely manner.
WAVE is a veterans’ outreach program that provides “one-stop shopping” for resolving any issue that affects a veteran or their family member. WAVE helps veterans receive all the benefits they deserve from the VA, as well as Douglas County, state and federal governments and also provides support with housing and transportation to veterans.
