Funding the Troops in Combat, and When They Return

‘These funds, coupled with an updated GI Bill for our veterans will help our troops while in combat, and when they return home to their families'

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Monday after the President signed the war supplemental funding bill which funds our troops in the field through next spring:

"The supplemental spending request that was sent to Congress last year by the President was unambiguous: the funds were to be spent on our forces in the field, on the men and women fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. Though it took more than 500 days for the new Congress to get it done, the combat forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan will now have sufficient funding to carry out their missions through next spring. These funds, coupled with an updated GI Bill for our veterans will help our troops while in combat, and when they return home to their families."
