Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (Westchester/Rockland), the Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee, is paying honor to veterans on Veterans Day and says she will continue to work on their behalf.
“On Veterans Day, we salute all those who have served our country in the armed forces. With more than 890,000 veterans across New York State, today is an important day of reflection to express our sincere appreciation for their sacrifice.
“We must deliver the benefits, care, and training that our veterans deserve. While there is more work to do, I’m proud to have voted for the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act, enacted in February, to expand access to mental health care for our veterans, and to be a co-sponsor of the Manufacturing Jobs for Veterans Act to increase veterans’ access to training, educational opportunities and certification courses needed to secure good jobs. In addition, a new therapeutic pool facility is under construction at the Montrose VA Hospital, made possible with federal funds I fought to secure.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to veterans and their families for their service in defense of our freedom. I will continue to work in Congress to ensure that we live up to the promises we have made to those who have bravely served.”
