ANDOVER, MA –  Underscoring that "we have an obligation to honor the promises we’ve made to our service members and their families," Democratic congressional candidate Dan Koh today announced a comprehensive veterans platform. The policy proposal focuses on providing effective mental health care, combatting veteran homelessness, modernizing the VA, and addressing sexual assault in the military. The full platform is available at

"Veterans deserve the highest quality care when they return home," said Koh. "Instead of giving tax breaks and handouts to big corporations, we must prioritize the well-being of those who have given everything to this country."

Koh added, "When drafting legislation, Congress needs to do a better job of holding public hearings and listening to testimony from veterans and veterans’ organizations. Veterans are community leaders and heroes, and their voice needs to be heard. As a Congressman, I will stand alongside our veterans and fight to make sure they get the support they need."
