Let me first commend to everyone's attention the excellent and important piece in The Hill by Emmanuel Touhey
about the excellent work being done by programs that support veterans
and, above all, the need for every vet to take full advantage of these
Touhey’s piece features the contribution and views of Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), an American hero who was instrumental in the passage of the latest GI bill, and the vital work of the Pat Tillman Foundation, named after another great American hero of our generation. The foundation makes an enormous contribution to education for vets who return home.
I was a strong advocate for Sen. Webb when he first ran for the Senate. He will be deeply missed in the next Congress. And words cannot fully express my admiration for Pat Tillman and the incredibly wonderful work his family and others are doing in this name, to help those who were part of Pat Tillman's band of brothers and sisters.
