Submission For The Record of Congressman Ron Barber (D-AZ-02)
I am sorry that I cannot be with you. I am in Yuma today for the dedication of the John Roll United States Courthouse.
Our nation owes each of our veterans a debt greater than gratitude. I will continue working in Congress with my colleagues, like Congresswomen Kirkpatrick and Congressman Coffman, to ensure that each of our veterans and their families receive the care, the benefits and the opportunities they have earned and deserve.
We need to do all we can as a Congress, a community and a country to guarantee care for those who've served and sacrificed for our nation.
Thank you for coming to Southern Arizona to explore the critical issues of mental health care and traumatic brain injury services for our veterans.
