Veterans and men and women in the military selflessly answered the call to serve, putting their lives on the line for our freedom and security. When they return home from duty, our veterans deserve access to the best America has to offer and the freedom of choice they fought to protect. Whether 3 days or 30, no veteran should have to wait longer than civilians to see a doctor when they are sick.

The Veterans Freedom of Healthcare Act allows veterans to get the quality care they deserve when they need it. We also owe it to our heroes to connect them with an affordable education and employment opportunities, particularly those that build on their existing skill sets. Finally, we must preserve and honor the great legacy of our service members, past and present, as a reminder of the values and sacrifice that built our nation.
