Congresswoman Frederica Wilson

Representing the 24th District of Florida


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.
