Earlier this evening Pres. Obama vowed the uphold that “sacred trust” with our armed forces and veterans.

Here is an excerpt from his remarks:

I intend to start that work by making good on my pledge to transform the Department of Veterans Affairs for the 21st century.  That’s an effort that, under Secretary Shinseki’s leadership, all of you have already begun — conducting a thorough review of your operations all across this agency. And I intend to support this effort not just with words of encouragement, but with resources.  That’s why the budget I sent to Congress increases funding for this department by $25 billion over the next five years.

Read his full remarks here.
