America’s veterans are some of the most courageous individuals in our country and I praise them for putting their lives on the line in times of unrest. It is important that when our troops return from the battlefield they receive the appropriate amount of heath care and benefits. Let it be known that I fully support efforts to improve health care benefits and retirement plans for our veterans. I have also increased efforts to improve the quality of living for all current military families. Even as the Federal Government takes the necessary steps to reel in spending and address our Nation's deficit and debt, we must make sure that any cost-cutting considerations do not leave our veterans behind or forgotten. In repaying our Nation's debts, we must always remember the price our Veterans have paid in sacrifice.
