Senator Begich given seat on Veterans Affairs Committee

Senator Mark Begich has secured a seat on the Veterans Affairs Committee.  It’s his third committee assignment, after Armed Services and the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee.  Begich says it’s a good fit, since Veterans make up 11% of Alaska’s population.  He says they face especially big challenges, given Alaska’s remoteness and how far away it is from the major VA centers.
