Bush also unveiled a proposed plan to support American veterans once he is elected president, a Veteran Affairs reform effort that includes expanding options for health care outside Veterans Administration without cutting funding for VA hospitals and medical staff.

Bush’s proposal would “keep America’s promise to our veterans,” which he believes is the top priority for the next president of the United States. The full plan is online here.

Also on Monday, Bush visited Columbia, S.C., to meet with veterans and attend a town hall presented by the Concerned Veterans for America. Prior to the event, Bush announced the endorsement of 12 individual Medal of Honor recipients, which Fox News called “15 percent of all living recipients of the nation’s highest military honor.”
