Transcript

VETERANS
The nation must never forget its appreciation and obligation to those who have served in the armed forces.
Because they bear the heaviest burdens of war, we owe special honor and compensation to disabled veterans and survivors of the war dead.
We are firmly committed to maintaining and improving our Veterans Administration hospital system.
Younger veterans, especially those who served in the Vietnam conflict, deserve education, job and housing loan benefits equivalent to those of World War II and the Korean conflict. Because of our deep and continuing concern for those still listed as Prisoners of War or Missing in Action in Vietnam, the Foreign Policy section of this Republican Platform calls for top priority actions.
And we must continue to provide for our veterans at their death a final resting place for their remains in a national cemetery and the costs of transportation thereto.
