Coming  up today on the show, Sen. Dan Coats reacts to the allegations of long lines at the VA and the unfolding situation in Iraq.

Some vets are happy with their care at the VA but unhappy with how hard it is to get there. We’ll talk to a local advocate for disabled vets.

Host Steve Walsh also talks to the governor’s representative for career readiness about plans to revamp the way Indiana trains children and adults for jobs.

Last week, we talked to the Indiana Department of Corrections about why they are opting out of the program to control prison rape. On this show, we talk to an advocate about the potential consequences.

Guests include:

John Birdzell, of Crown Point, is a retired hospital administrator who now volunteers with the Disabled American Veterans

Dan Coats, US Senator

Jackie Dowd, Governor Pence’s Special Assistant for Career Innovation

Liz Ryan, President & CEO, Campaign for Youth Justice
