Rep. Shelley Berkley deserves a big vote of confidence from Nevada veterans. She has been a great supporter and advocate on behalf of veterans’ rights and services. The new veterans hospital is a testimony to her commitment and contributions. As a Navy combat veteran and VFW life member, I have had the opportunity to visit other Veterans Administration hospital facilities, and I would rate the Southern Nevada facility one of the best in the United States.

Many of us who attended the grand opening realize that many people contributed toward the hospital’s completion. However, we also should recognize that Berkley had a vision and cared enough about veterans’ health, medical needs and services to lead efforts to obtain land and secure the funding for the hospital in Congress. Her dedication to our veterans is commendable.
