Take better care of veterans

veteransfieldGood for Gov. Sam Brownback for wanting to improve veteran services in Kansas. Brownback proposed a $1.4 million renovation of the Kansas Soldiers’ Home residential facility in Dodge City. He also wants to open a housing unit in Winfield that was built several years ago but never opened, and to hire four outreach officers to connect veterans with services. Funding for the facility improvements in Dodge City would come from a special building fund restricted to improvements at state-owned hospitals and veterans’ facilities. Other funding would come from federal sources, including Medicare, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
