Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano made the following statement on President Obama's announcement that troop withdrawals will begin in Afghanistan:
"This troop withdrawal means we can finally begin welcoming our soldiers home to their families. We must be ready to support our fighting men and women and ensure they have the services, job training, and medical care they need to return to civilian life. It is critical for our economy and our country that we continue to bring our troops home. The funds being sent abroad are needed here in the U.S. to invest in job creation and pay down the debt."
