Again and again, the men and women of our Armed Services demonstrate extraordinary courage and selflessness. The sacrifices they and their families routinely make are difficult to fathom. In Congress, I am committed to honoring our service members not only with words but with deeds. I strongly support President Obama’s efforts to increase funding to the Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure that all veterans have access to top quality healthcare and employment services. I am particularly committed to ensuring that our men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have the support they need to find meaningful work, a good income, and the social support they need upon arriving home. For this reason, I am also a strong supporter of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which provides educational benefits to veterans. Caring for returning warriors is one of society’s most sacred obligations. It’s an obligation I promise to uphold.
