Martin vows to do more for veterans as attorney general

A Republican candidate for Missouri attorney general says the office must do more to help veterans and those serving in the military.

St. Louis attorney Ed Martin is calling out incumbent Chris Koster for not making veteran’s mental health care a top priority.

“We have coming a tsunami of men and women," he said, "who are facing serious mental health PTSD issues and to not acknowledge it is to be making a terrible mistake and disrespecting our priorities.”

Martin says as attorney general he would work to consolidate the services state government offers to veterans and those on active duty. Martin is running against Livingston County Prosecutor Adam Warren in the Republican primary. Both are seeking to deny Koster, a Democrat, a second term.
