November 11 stands as one of this country’s most important days of recognition as we pay tribute to those who defend our freedom. Veterans Day gives us the opportunity to honor the heroes among us. I’d like to thank every veteran who has served, and all those currently serving, for their incredible sacrifice to our great nation.
Our government must honor its commitment to make sure service members are never left behind. That includes making sure they get treatment for mental disorders caused by the trauma of war.
September 11 taught us that we can no longer ignore the threats of foreign terrorists who declare war on America. With hundreds of millions of dollars on hand from ransoms paid and outright theft, the Islamic State (ISIS) has emerged as the most well financed terrorist group in history.
