Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Senator Heitkamp is touring North Dakota vowing to stand up for the state's veterans.

She held a veterans roundtable at the Fargo American Legion with people who have served our country and employees of Fargo's VA. They talked about some of their top issues in our area.

Heitkamp says she wants to improve veteran's healthcare and their transition back home after serving as well as reduce the growing suicide rate.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, (D) North Dakota: “We're excited to be here. I have learned so much on this tour, come back with so many good ideas from veterans about how to help future veterans and great compliments for the VA here in Fargo.”

Fargo is the last stop on the seven city tour.
