As a daughter of a World War II veteran, I have a unique privilege of making sure that our military families receive federal funding they have earned through their service.
U.S. service men and women dedicate their life to defending our freedom and liberty and we are all grateful for their outstanding service.
Congress must continue working to provide our veterans and their families with health, education, and employment resources. In Congress, I have worked to increase support for our veterans and proudly voted for landmark legislation geared toward assisting our veterans and their families. I was a strong supporter of the Post 9-11 GI Bill to restore the promise of a full, four-year college education and has allowed hundreds of thousands of veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars to afford college. We have also strengthened health care for millions of veterans. This effort includes a historic commitment -- including the largest single increase in the history of the VA -- for more doctors and nurses, better access for rural veterans, and expanded efforts to treat the signature injuries of the war.
These are significant achievements that will help military families all across the country, but we must do more. I remain dedicated to building upon this legislative progress with my colleagues in Congress. Just as the military pledges to leave no soldier behind on the battlefield, Congress will leave no veteran behind when they return.
