The Modern Whig Party of America supports U.S. humanitarian aid and relief efforts to prevent dehydration and starvation of Iraqi civilians. Many of these civilians are facing indiscriminate persecution and murder at the hands of ISIS. The Modern Whig Party should support the use of U.S. airstrikes designed to protect and prevent the slaughter of Iraqi civilians. The Modern Whig Party should also support the use of U.S. forces to aid in any possible evacuation of civilians if need be.
On Monday, July 28, US Congress unveiled an agreement through the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees to reform the beleaguered Veterans Administration. The measure comes in the wake of a recent scandal involving health care access, whistleblower retaliation, and cover-up. At least 40 deaths are attributed to delays at the Phoenix facility alone.

Aloha fellow Whigs and Veterans! I will be traveling this week to Lihue, Kauai, HI from February 12th to February 17th, 2015. Any veterans or party members in that area who wish to sit down and discuss issues/ideas please email me at veteransmodernwhig [dot] org and leave a good contact phone number. Between SCUBA diving and hiking around the rain forest, I'm sure I can find time for some face-to-face meetings in a setting where I don't need to wear my parka.
Note: After posting the above, I noticed that the email address did not come across as intended. The email address should be "veterans" followed by the "at" symbol "modernwhig" dot "org.
Modern Whig Party Deputy Director of Veterans and Active Duty Affairs Matthew Benedict shares his views on the effect of the Movie American Sniper and on pending legislation to support veterans. His post follows this introduction:
Because Whigs value differences of opinion and independent thought, we do not necessarily take a position on every particular issue that may be fashionable for the moment. Instead, we propose a program of broad reforms that we believe will strengthen our country as it faces the challenges of the 21st century.
