Veterans could soon get free child care during medical treatment
from Military Times
The House of Representatives passed a bill that seeks to make permanent an existing pilot program rolled out in 2011. At the time, a survey by the Department of Veterans Affairs found that more than 10 percent of veterans had to cancel or reschedule VA appointments because they lacked child care, and one-third said they were interested in child care services. "We made a promise that our veterans will get the care they've earned," Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Calif., said in an email. "We can't put insurmountable roadblocks in front of their ability to receive that care."
