A ground-breaker for women in the military, Kathryn “Kat” Gates-Skipper is now an advocate for veteran’s rights and was the keynote speaker at the annual Reagan Day Dinner sponsored by the Warren County Republican Party.“The government takes care of everyone else, including the illegal aliens, before they take care of their veterans,” Skipper told those on hand at the GOP dinner at Westwood Church of Christ’s fellowship hall Saturday night. “Veterans have to endure the effects of their service for the rest of their lives.”Skipper presently spearheads veterans’ rights efforts in Florida and serves on President Donald Trump’s advisory council for veterans. She has been a veteran advocate since 2012.
