Beatty's Pledge to Veterans
We have an obligation to our country’s servicemembers and veterans. These brave Americans and their families make enormous sacrifices for our country every day. That is why I remain strongly committed to our current and former members of the Armed Forces and to making sure we keep our promises to them when they return from service.
