Topic of Discussion:
Republicans are often viewed as the party of veterans, and this presumption is supported by public opinion and voting data. Yet more often than not, Democrats in Congress are the ones working to enhance veterans benefits. In her new book, Congress and U.S. Veterans: From the GI Bill to the VA Crisis, Cormack explores this curiosity, and on November 7, she’ll be joined in conversation with Dr. Jeremy Teigen of Ramapo College and Stevens own Dr. Don Lombardi to further explore veteran politics.
