As a retired Air Force Reservist and the first Mississippian to ever serve on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, I understand the issues affecting our nation’s veterans. My father is a World War II veteran, and my son was in the Air Force. We have a responsibility to take care of those who have sacrificed to protect the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. During my service in the U.S. House of Representatives, I coauthored the bill that gave the Department of Veterans Affairs the largest funding increase in history. In the Senate, I am continuing to fight to make sure our nation’s veterans receive the highest quality of medical care possible. I also supported legislation to expand the education benefits included in the Montgomery G.I. Bill, giving veterans even more opportunities as they leave the service and transition into civilian life.
