On June 6, the Veterans Administration Mission Act went into effect, designed to greatly improve veteran access to VA healthcare. On this episode of Veteran's Affairs, KSJD's Tom Yoder talks with local vet Bert Valencia and Montezuma County Veterans Service Officer Rick Torres about what the Mission Act means for vets in the Four Corners area.

Retired Pvt. Leslie P. Cruise, 95, remembers June 6, 1944, clearly. Standing at the airplane's edge, preparing to jump onto the enemy lines of Normandy on D-Day, fear didn't occur to him.

"It was very moving and exciting," Cruise tells NPR's Noel King. "We fly over the channel; you can look out the window and see the silhouettes of the ships. We know what's going to happen now. We've talked about it, but look at all those ships down there, my gosh."
