Over 15 years of war overseas produced a new generation of American veterans. As Veterans Day approaches, I want these heroes to know that as ranking member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I’m holding Washington, D.C. accountable to the promises made to those who served.
Saying “thank you” isn’t enough. Chairman Isakson and I worked to hold VA leadership accountable to veterans, tear down barriers to care for the folks who served, and increase education benefits in the post-9/11 G.I. Bill.
Our veterans fought to defend our freedoms, and I promise to keep fighting for you.
– Senator Jon Tester, Ranking Member, Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
