Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the latest installment of Ask Peter today, a frequent video conversation with Sixth District residents about issues important to them. In this segment, Congressman Roskam thanks our nations veterans for their service and talks about what his office can do to help those who have served our country.
"I heard an expression once that deeply resonated with me, and it said, "for those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor that the protected will never know.' And for those who served, they'll know what I'm talking about. I am deeply appreciative of your service.
"In the House of Representatives, we've taken on this responsibility seriously to help veterans as they transition back home. We've passed legislation that helps more veterans get the support they need in terms of assisted living, to break through bureaucracies that can be so challenging as veterans are transitioning home."
