Congressman Scalise believes we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to our nation's veterans. Throughout American history, the men and women of the armed forces have answered their nation's call to battle. These men and women have bravely sacrificed for their country and defended its freedom while risking their lives and livelihoods. Congressman Scalise is grateful for the courage veterans have displayed and the sacrifices they have made in order to protect America and its freedom.
Protecting and providing for America's veterans is a top priority for Congressman Scalise. He is working to ensure that veterans receive the benefits they deserve and access to quality healthcare. Congressman Scalise believes the Veterans' Affairs (VA) Health Care System should be fully funded and should provide the best care available for America's veterans. America's veterans have served their country with honor; it is only fitting that Congress serve them with the same honor.
