"I am proud to support those who served our country in the military. The contributions they make to our lives cannot be overstated. My son Michael joined the service shortly after 9/11, and caring for our men and women in uniform is a deep personal priority. Please be in touch for assistance with veterans issues and to share your comments and concerns." - Congressman Jerry McNerney
The GI Bill is a vital resource for millions of veterans to attend higher education courses.
It is deeply saddening that suicide rates have risen among veterans and active duty service men and women. If you or some one you know needs immediate medical assistance, please call 911. There is also a Veterans Crisis Line available at (800) 273-8255.
