Veterans

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.

I am a member of Congress and serve on the House Armed Services Committee. I am the father of a veteran. And I am also the product of a registered apprenticeship. Our veterans are highly trained and skilled, making them uniquely suited for careers in the skilled trades. The BRAVE Act was designed to help their reentry into civilian life by connecting them to the resources they need to find fulfilling, good-paying careers.

The U.S. Senate is now considering an amendment from Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) which would grow our industrial base and help give thousands of working Americans the chance to improve their lives. The "Buy American" amendment would also increase the number of domestic manufacturers throughout the country. I applaud the members of the U.S. House of Representatives who voted in favor of this amendment, which was introduced by Rep. Donald Norcross (D-N.J.).
