The Honorable

Robert Wilkie

United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs


The Jesse Helms Lecture Series highlights foreign policies that Senator Helms championed throughout his years in office. Senator Helms was an ardent supporter of America’s veterans and took particular pride in making sure that every former service member could rely on his assistance and intervention to make sure that they received the best possible care. Secretary Wilkie knows Senator Helm’s commitment to this issue better than anyone having served as Counsel to the Senator.

Please join us as Secretary Wilkie discusses the progress he has made in reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs to make sure that the brave men and women who serve in America’s armed forces who sacrifice so much for our safety and security receive the care and benefits they have earned.
