Military and Veterans
I am committed to ensuring our nation’s veterans have the health care and services they have earned, and I am pleased to have helped secure $75 million for a new Veterans Hospital in Louisville. This is a monumental victory for our medical community and each of the more than 100,000 veterans who live in and around Louisville.
Congress has achieved unprecedented progress in the treatment of our nation’s veterans, including the single largest increase in funding for the Veterans Administration in our nation’s history and a new GI Bill that gives more veterans the opportunity to earn a college degree.
When we challenge our young men and women to put on a uniform and risk their lives for our country, we promise to always take care of those who answer the call. Honoring this pact is among the key virtues that make America worth fighting for, and I intend to see that it is fully honored.
