It 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.
