‘I am a nurse for the women’s clinic at the Salt Lake City George E. Wahlen Veterans Administration. I’m here at the Pride Festival because we want to let all people…gay, lesbian, straight or not… know that we exist and that if there are men and women who served in the military, they should seriously consider applying for benefits. They should come meet us. I have met way too many people who say they don’t have their benefits. Many people don’t realize they’re eligible. We have people who qualify as veterans at age eighteen. People think, ‘I’m not injured.’ You don’t have to have an injury. We treat a wide variety of concerns. I encourage people who have been in the military to come see if they’re eligible for benefits because we can offer them a lot and even if it takes time, it’s worth checking out.’
