Congressman Zeldin Statement on David Jakubonisí Transfer to VA Treatment Facility

NEW YORK - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), the Republican Party and Conservative Party Nominee for Governor, released the following statement regarding David Jakubonis being transferred to a VA treatment facility:

ďWhen our veterans seek treatment, itís easy to pinpoint their physical wounds, but oftentimes their invisible wounds go unnoticed and untreated. Unfortunately, itís now clear that Mr. Jakubonis is one of the many veterans battling invisible demons, but, fortunately for Mr. Jakubonis, he is now getting the help he needs. Iím thankful for the judge who has wisely recognized this reality, the Monroe County Veterans Services Office, and other individuals who have worked diligently to assist.Ē
