Kentuckians have served on the front lines since the American Revolution, giving the state of Kentucky a strong veteran legacy.
Kentucky Representative Walker Thomas writes a heart-felt appreciation to all of the fallen heroes of America, and outlines the legislation that has been passed by the House and Senate to benefit Kentucky military personnel who are active duty or retired.
He believes that the best way to honor the men and women who have sacrificed everything for our country is to ensure that those who make it home are well taken care of. He describes the legislation that has been passed recently by Kentucky to benefit the state’s veterans, and includes the importance of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
In addition, we endorsed the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments by the Veterans Administration (HCR 40). Studies have shown these treatments can repair the brain tissue, which would significantly improve the quality of life for many of the 13,000 Kentucky veterans suffering from brain injuries and disorders.
