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, and he is dedicated to seeing that they receive every benefit they were promised and have more than earned.
With these convictions in mind, 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. He was a strong supporter of the post 9/11 G.I. Bill, which has significantly increased educational benefits for recently returned veterans, and he will continue to work to ensure that our veterans have all the resources they need to build a strong and successful future.
