Airbus Helicopters presents defense lineup at Eurosatory 2014

Marignane, France – The rugged, capable and mission-ready military rotorcraft lineup from Airbus Helicopters will be displayed at next week’s Eurosatory 2014 defense exposition near Paris, France, along with a focus on the latest innovation for its product family.

The U. S. Senate on June 11 overwhelmingly agreed to a compromise U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reform bill that will increase veterans' access to care by allowing them to seek care outside the VA in certain circumstances and will also fund construction of new VA hospitals.

The Senate-passed bill would make it easier to fire incompetent senior leaders, reprimand those who falsified health care wait-time records, hire additional VA doctors and nurses, and open additional medical facilities. The legislation would allow veterans who are more than 40 miles from a VA health care facility to seek private care. It also expands educational benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
