What advice would you give to others who would like to dedicate time to Veterans' issues?
Ray Kokkonen: You know I was speaking with my wife about this interview just a little while ago, and I said 'the easiest one for me to answer is the last question'. First of all, anybody that wants to work within the Veterans' community, they must recognize that change is incremental, things will not happen in two days and governments move slowly. You have to keep your expectations realistic, both in the level of achievement and the time in which it will be achieved. I think that's the best advice I can give.
