Former Senator Robert Dole talked about the changes being made to improve care for wounded veterans. The former senator, who was gravely wounded in World War II, is co-chair of President Bush's Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded Warriors. The bipartisan commission released a report in August 2007 calling for rules to simplify the confusing standards for determining disability and compensation, eliminate overlapping activities between the Defense Department and the Veterans Administration, reduce inequities, and provide the tools for injured veterans to return to productive civilian lives.
