Congressman Yarmuth believes strongly that the United States should be as committed to our heroes in uniform as they are to us. He understands the great sacrifice our service members and their families make on a daily basis to protect us at home and abroad, and he is dedicated to seeing that they receive every benefit they were promised and have more than earned.
That is why Congressman Yarmuth helped pass the largest increase in veterans' health care funding in American history and secured $75 million for the construction of a new VA Hospital in Louisville.
On the Budget Committee, he offered an amendment to protect veterans’ benefits from another dangerous government shutdown and help veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq to find jobs.
The Congressman was also an original cosponsor of the G.I. Bill for the 21st Century, which will significantly increase educational benefits for our nation's recently returned veterans. He believes that it is our obligation to provide our service members every opportunity to succeed and build a strong future when they return home.
