As Veterans Day approaches, Congressman Simpson reflects on the exceptional commitment to service demonstrated by veterans and active members of the military every day.  “This Veterans Day, we honor and thank our nation’s veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made to keep us safe.  These heroes have dedicated their lives to protecting our American way of life, and it is because they serve that we may live freely and without fear,” said Simpson.  “I consider it one of my greatest honors and responsibilities to give back to these citizens who have given so much of themselves.  For this reason, I am proud to have joined with my colleagues in Congress in sending more than half a dozen veterans related bills to the President’s desk for signature during the 115th Congress, and to have supported many more on the floor of the House of Representatives throughout my career.  From H.R. 3218, the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017, to H.R. 244, the HIRE Vets Act, Congress is deeply committed to advocating for our nation’s veterans and their families.  On behalf of a grateful nation, I again thank our veterans for their courageous commitment to duty, and the sacrifices they have made to protect our freedoms.”
