Veteran’s group endorses Soto

Veterans and Military Families for Progress enthusiastically and proudly endorses Rudy Soto in the upcoming Idaho election.

Founded in 2005, VMFP is dedicated to ensuring that the rights and needs of veterans, active-duty service members including National Guard, Coast Guard and reservists, and their families are understood by the American public, endorsed by our elected officials and protected by legislation, regulation and public policy initiatives.

Rudy Soto has demonstrated an extraordinarily strong commitment and deep understanding of the issues that affect America’s veterans. As a candidate Rudy has been a strong supporter of our nation’s veterans and active armed forces. Rudy Soto understands the need for military members who are reintegrating into the civilian job market to have access to educational benefits and job training opportunities and will introduce and support legislation that helps to achieve these goals.

His public support for priority funding of the Veterans Administration and declared determination to provide for the establishment of a national veterans and military family policy give veterans and their families hope that Idaho will have a Representative who will vote in such a way as to keep faith with those who have served and sacrificed.

As a veteran, Rudy Soto has a deep and personal understanding of the issues veterans and their families confront. His decision to support legislation for improving the treatment of veterans with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD, and his deep understanding of the need for providing and guaranteeing full health coverage for National Guard, Coast Guard and Reserve personnel demonstrate that he is a candidate who has the character, courage and personal family experience to do what is right for those in service to our country.

We feel that veterans, active duty, military families, and in fact, all people of Idaho will be well-served with Rudy Soto’s election to the US House of Representatives and thus ensure that America remains strong in national defense and in fighting terrorism.
