UNION OFFICIALS PRAISE PLANS FOR INVESTIGATION INTO ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM AT VETERANS AFFAIRS Officials from the largest federal workers union on Friday hailed news of an upcoming investigation into problems of racism within the Department of Veterans Affairs, saying that attention on the problem is overdue.

Last week we asked what everyone's favorite branch of service was. The results in order were Army (43.5%), Marine Corps (23.2%), Air Force (14.5%), Navy (11.6%), Space Force (4.3%), and Coast Guard (2.9%).
