Rep. TJ Cox introduces Forgotten Vietnam Veterans Act
“We are indebted to those who defended our Country during the Vietnam War. They placed duty to Country over themselves and sacrificed so others wouldn’t have to. Our Country can never repay that debt, but we can ensure these brave veterans receive the benefits they deserve,” said Rep. Baird.
“The men and women who put on the uniform to defend our nation during the Vietnam War made the decision to put country before self. We will never be able to repay them for their sacrifice, but ensuring those who served in Vietnam have access to the benefits they earned is the least we can do,” said Rep. Mast. “That’s what this bill is all about.”
“As a Gold Star Son who lost my father in the Vietnam War, veteran and military issues are deeply important to me,” said Rep. Phillips. “Our nation has always found the resources to go to war, and we must also find the resources necessary to provide the support our veterans deserve when they come home. This bill ensures that those who served get the benefits they have earned.”
“Whenever our soldiers sign up to go to war, it’s a commitment that should be a two-way street: they promise to put their lives on the line for their country, and we promise that we’ll always have their backs when they come home,” said Rep. Rose, an Army combat veteran. “This bill is our chance to make good on that promise, and I’m proud to support making sure these heroes get the benefits they deserve.”
“The brave soldiers who selflessly fought in Vietnam deserve our full and unwavering support,” said Rep. Roy. “This legislation ensures that all those who fought in Vietnam get the benefits they deserve.”
