Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs: Daryl Smith
This department very literally takes care of our veterans. They take care of the federal benefits and patient care for these veterans and their dependents. Leading this group is an important job, as we have all heard far too much about our vets not getting the services that they need upon returning home.
To fill this job appropriately you need someone who has been through a lot. The leader needs to be someone who understands the needs of the veterans so he can fight to provide those needs. Many are our most senior members of society, so they must be taken care of.
So for this role, in goes the longest tenured NFL player on the roster. Daryl Smith is in his 13th year in the league and has been a solid player for his entire career. He is in his first year with Tampa, but over his first 12 full seasons, he has averaged nearly 89 tackles per year, covering 176 games.
From the Jaguars, to the Ravens, and now to the Bucs, he has been through a lot. He’s a perfect choice to head up this department.
