VA Official Visits Santa Monica to Address Homeless Vets


DOWNTOWN — Dr. Tommy Sowers is a former U.S. Army Special Forces officer and was the 2010 Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives in Missouri’s 8th congressional district before being sworn in on Aug. 20, 2012 as assistant secretary for public and intergovernmental affairs for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

President Barack Obama tapped the Bronze Star recipient to oversee programs involving intergovernmental relations, including homeless veterans. Sowers, who has a Ph.D. in government from the London School of Economics, was in Los Angeles Wednesday to tour the West Los Angeles V.A. and to speak directly with homeless service providers.

Following that encounter, Sowers, 36, spoke with the Santa Monica Daily Press about his mission and the president’s ambitious goal of ending veteran homelessness in the next five years.
