Today, we honor all of the military veterans who have bravely protected our nation.
Though we can never fully repay those who have answered the call of duty, we must work every day to show our gratitude. Whether it’s buying from a local veteran-owned business or hiring a veteran, we can play our part to help those who have served America.
As your state representative, I’ll continue to vote in favor of policies benefiting our veterans, like supporting the new law expanding the eligibility for the Military Family Relief Fund, which provides temporary assistance grants to military families.
Indiana is a model for the rest of the nation when it comes to creating an environment in which veterans and their families can thrive. Our state has one of the lowest veteran-unemployment rates in the country, and our state government has a purchase preference program for veteran-owned businesses.
While Veterans Day provides opportunities to honor all who served in the United States Armed Forces, we can work each day to support those who bravely protected our nation.
To our veterans, thank you for your service.
God bless America,
