The Leadership Change at the Department of Veterans Affairs

March 30, 2018

Episode Notes:

Earlier this week President Trump fired his Secretary of Veterans Affairs, David Shulkin. The country’s second largest department will—if confirmed—be led by Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson, the long-time White House physician. Bill Rausch, an independent consultant and experienced veteran service organization hand, talks with Jason about the challenges facing the Department, the issue of privatization, and some advice for Admiral Jackson.
