“On Veterans Day, we honor the men and women that served, and those who continue to serve, our country.  In recognition of their sacrifice, we owe our service members our deepest gratitude.

“As the Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) I am honored to work with and represent the brave men and women who have donned the uniform to represent the United States of America. One of my top priorities in Congress is to ensure that we take care of our military, as well as our veterans. We should be doing everything possible to ensure that members of our military come home to quality jobs, educational opportunities and receive the health care services that they deserve. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that we fulfill our commitments to our service members, their families, and our veterans. Today, and every day, we honor the courage and selfless service of our veterans.”
