Vote Vets is there

By Jon Soltz

Iraq War Veteran and Chairman



When Trump was sworn in, we ran ads featuring an Afghanistan veteran and aired them where we knew he’d see it: on the morning cable shows.

When he signed an executive order calling for a hiring freeze, we forced his administration to reverse closures to schools servicing military families overseas.

When he took aim at health care, we identified hundreds of veterans who would be devastated by the repeal of Obamacare and helped make their voices heard in the heat of the debate.

Here’s the truth: no matter the fight — when President Trump’s policies take aim at veterans, military families, and our nation’s security we’re going to be there elevating the voices of veterans who are willing to stand up to him. But we can’t do it alone.

There’s no shortage of important debates on the horizon. We must continue to defend Obamacare. There’s the coming conservative effort to privatize veterans’ health care that we must stop. And we still need to get to the bottom of Trump’s relationship with Russia. We’ll be involved in each of those fights. And that work is funded by people like you who are willing to chip in.
