The Jewish War Veterans of the USA, America’s oldest active veterans organization, sadly joins the numerous other veterans organizations in expressing its disappointment in the handling of the sexual harassment complaint of a Jewish veteran at a VA facility.
As the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and because of his involvement in this matter, including the failure to cooperate with the Inspector General (IG) investigation, we feel there is no alternative but for Secretary Wilkie to resign forthwith.
While we have always had an excellent relationship with the Secretary, our responsibility and our loyalty will always be with the veteran.
