Broun: "One of my top priorities as Congressman is to support our United States veterans and active duty troops."
Capt. Leonard Sapera, on behalf of the Navy League of the United States, presented U.S. Congressman Paul Broun Monday, January 7, 2008 with a copy of the Navy League of the United States: Civilians Supporting the Sea Services for more than a Century. As a U.S. Marine and a former naval medical officer, Broun was honored by the gift, saying he holds all servicemen and women in high esteem.
"One of my top priorities as Congressman is to support our United States veterans and active duty troops," said Broun. "It is critical. It is also important to be able to recruit good people in to the military in the future, so we will have strong military forces that will continue to ensure the freedom we enjoy today."
During the month of January, Broun is holding three veterans town hall meetings. It is one of many ways he plans to make it clear he is committed to protecting the interests of the U.S. Military.
