To RSVP visit:
Kay will discuss her recently unveiled policy to keep our promises to our military and veterans. The policy Kay is unrolling this week includes ideas and suggestions brought up by North Carolina veterans during her previous town halls.
Senator Cleland served in the U.S. Senate from 1997 until 2003. An Army Captain, he was severely wounded fighting in Viet Nam. After recovering from his injuries he was elected to the Georgia State Senate, where he served for four years. President Jimmy Carter appointed him administrator of the United States Veteran's Administration in 1977 where he served with distinction until 1981. As administrator, and a veteran himself, Senator Cleland instituted the Readjustment Counseling Vet Center program, which, for the first time, offered combat veterans psychological counseling in addition to physical care. Senator Cleland also served as Georgia's Secretary of State.
On Friday in Raleigh, Kay will host her 6th Veterans' Town Hall, and she will host her 7th Veterans' Town Hall in Winston-Salem on Saturday. Kay comes from a strong military family and knows firsthand the importance of keeping our promises to our veterans. Kay's father, brother, and husband, Chip, served in the Navy, and Chip is a Viet Nam veteran who attended law school with help from the GI Bill. Her father-in-law is a retired two-star general in the Marine Corps, and she has two nephews on active duty.
