Thankful for Our Veterans
On November 13, 2018, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) had the following statement included in the Congressional Record:
"Mr. Speaker, I rise this Veterans’ Day week to express my gratitude to those who served our country and those who continue to serve.
Throughout our history, we have asked our brave men and women in uniform to do extraordinary things all over the world.
In return, we made a promise to provide them the best benefits, education, and healthcare possible.
One of the most important parts of my job is to make sure that veterans in my district get the benefits they’ve earned.
I’ve heard about the months-long delays veterans face in obtaining GI Bill benefits, and I am committed to working with my colleagues to fix the situation.
That’s because our nation’s leaders must honor our veterans, rain or shine.
I am happy that we will be joined in the next Congress by a new generation of veterans, including a record number of women veterans.
I look forward to working with them to fulfill the promise of Veterans’ Day this week and all year long."
