Woodbridge, VA - Today, the VoteVets Emerging Leader Program endorsed Josh King for the Virginia House of Delegates, 2nd District. The VoteVets Emerging Leader Program supports Veterans in state and local races across the country in an effort to elect more Veterans to office at all levels of the ballot.
Josh King is an Army combat Veteran having served two tours abroad during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Josh has made it his mission since returning home to support his fellow Veterans and will advocate for pro-Veteran policies in the House of Delegates.
Josh King said, “I will push to ensure that Virginia's Department of Veteran Services is fully staffed. Right now, Veterans can wait up to three months to get an appointment and a year to get compensation. It's unacceptable.”
As a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Josh will also strengthen the bond between returning Feterans and the non-profit groups that help them find jobs, get healthcare, and navigate the entitlement system.
