With bipartisan support from the House of Representatives, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) led a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs demanding improvements to the Veterans Crisis Line.

“Helping veterans, especially at their most critical hour, is one of my highest priorities in Congress,” Luetkemeyer said. “It is unacceptable that veterans have been placed on hold when calling the Veterans Crisis Line and even sometimes disconnected. This letter demands that the VA do a better job of helping our veterans and asks the agency to update Congress as to the status of improvements recommended by the VA Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) to the Veterans Crisis Line.”

Luetkemeyer led the bipartisan letter with 39 additional members of Congress.
