“The information provided by the VFW is important as the Committee analyzes the budget and addresses the pressing needs of veterans,” said Chairman Filner. “As we fund the war, we must also fund the warrior. We must provide the necessary funding to pay for the health care services and benefits for our brave men and women who have answered the call of their country. Ensuring veterans are provided promised benefits and services are issues that we as a Congress must continue to take seriously.”
