Members of the United States Armed Forces dedicate their lives to defending our freedom. When they return home, we must provide our veterans and their families with the health, education, and employment resources that they have so bravely earned.
As the daughter of a World War II veteran, I am always mindful of the need to support our veterans and their families. Building on the progress we have already made, we must continue working to ensure veterans have high-quality health care, including treatment for the signature injuries of war, access to a four-year college education, and job training programs that can help them transition to the civil workforce.

Madam Speaker, I rise in strong support of the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act of 2019 (H.R. 299).
When our brave men and women sign up to serve, the American people make a promise to them.
