Congressman Ro Khanna

Representing the 17th District of California

Veterans

Veterans LogoIt is our responsibility to return support for the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who took an oath to protect our country. I will advocate for improved health care services and benefits for veterans and increased support for their families and those of our servicemembers. We have a solemn obligation to honor their valor and service to our nation.

Reentry to civilian life is a complicated process that nonetheless provides incredible opportunity for growth and development. I support job training and retraining programs, tax credits for businesses that hire veterans, and a streamlined employment process to fully take advantage of the unique skills veterans have to offer. I will continue to work to ensure our veterans have every opportunity to successfully participate in the digital economy.

In July, the House unanimously passed the Vet-Tec Act, which was part of a legislative package called the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017. I was the lead Democratic sponsor of the Vet-Tec Act, which was introduced by Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
