Statement on Secretary Shinseki's Resignation

Salem, MA — Seth Moulton, Iraq war veteran and Democratic candidate for Congress in Massachusetts' Sixth Congressional District, released the following statement following Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki's resignation:

"I respect General Shinseki for his long and honorable service to our country," said Moulton. "He had the courage to push back against the Iraq War plans of top officials at the Pentagon, and now he’s shown the courage to accept responsibility and accountability for the major problems at VA hospitals across the country. I hope the Acting Secretary will act swiftly to fix the systemic problems at the VA, and look forward to working with him to ensure veterans receive the very best care."
