The brave men and women who have served courageously in all branches of our armed forces have put their country and honor above their own safety and security and for that we owe them more gratitude than we can express. To our veterans and active military—we thank you today and always.

When our veterans return home we have an obligation to ensure that they have access to the critical health, education and financial resources needed to make the necessary decisions that are in the best interest of both themselves and their families.

The sacred pledge holds true: just as we are to leave no one behind on the battlefield, we must leave no veteran behind when they return home.
