Honoring our Veterans' Service and Sacrifice
As the daughter of two World War II veterans, I appreciate the service and sacrifice made by the men and women who have defended our freedoms. I am working to honor our country's commitment to provide care and support to our veterans throughout their lives. That's why I've introduced legislation to preserve our local VA campuses, Montrose and Castle Point, to serve exclusively the needs of our veterans. I joined a strong majority in the House of Representatives to pass the Veterans Opportunity to Work Act of 2011, which will help veterans to obtain jobs training for the modern marketplace. I'm also cosponsoring legislation to create a Cold War Service medal, and I have introduced legislation to appropriately memorialize our Guardsmen and Reservists.
