Too many veterans suffer hardship in silence. Just like I did. We are trained not to complain, to be self-sufficient, and to put the needs of others before our own. The proposed House farm bill, the Agriculture & Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2), will only create more suffering for veterans by weakening the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and forcing veterans and others to make impossible choices between food, health care, and shelter. It is time to speak up and act.
