Letter: Ashamed of Utah senators’ votes against vets

Aug 12, 2022

I am an Iraqi War veteran and a military retiree. My Senate delegation is an embarrassment to Utah. Both Senators voted against the PACT Act which would help veterans in some small degree who are getting sick and dying from military operations in places to where thy were sent and conducting activities to which they were directed. Neither of these Senators themselves or their children would have even considered being in the military (much less be deployed to a war zone), but the Senators have no compunction whatsoever sending other people’s children to be killed, maimed, and get ill and die from the activity they were ordered to perform without medical help.

They are both a hypocritical disgrace.
