Honoring the veterans who have defended our nation is of the utmost importance. To sacrifice life and limb to defend our freedoms and way of life demands our gratitude and respect.
We must ensure we are keeping the promises made to veterans by protecting the benefits they have earned. Further, for those veterans who have recently transitioned back to the general workforce, we need to promote policies which make these men and women competitive in the private-sector economy.
With thousands of veterans in North Carolina’s 11th District, I look forward to supporting policies which preserve the benefits they have earned while fighting to protect our freedom.
