Thune Applauds Passage of Bipartisan Clay Hunt SAV Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement on the Senate’s passage of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act:

“While we’ve made strides in recognizing the needs of America’s veterans, it’s an outrage our heroes still don’t have all of the mental health resources they need when they return home from the battlefield. There is still much to be done to treat the invisible wounds of war, and this bill, in conjunction with the efforts taken by Congress last year, will help us to further repay the tremendous debt of gratitude we owe the men and women who have answered the call to serve.”
