We owe our Nation's Veterans a debt of gratitude for protecting the freedoms we enjoy every day. Their numbers are growing as more and more of our young men and women return from honorable service in the War on Terror. Our responsibility to uphold our agreement with them is now even more important. We must make certain that they have the highest quality medical care. We must also welcome them back to our shores with open arms and gratitude for their tremendous service to our country.
As a Senator, Dave has been a staunch supporter of funding for veterans homes, veterans education and other priorities. He has also pushed for legislation which ensures service members, who are on tour overseas, get to keep their jobs when they return to the States.
