During the Iraq invasion of 2003, I worked in Kuwait as an English teacher. As the war progressed, I was later hired as a local contractor for the Army Corps of Engineers and spent two and half years in Iraq. During that time, I had the honor of working alongside many soldiers and I saw firsthand the horrors of war that they went through. Many times, I was outraged by seeing our brave soldiers putting themselves in harm's way without the equipment and protection they needed. Now, after facing a decade of being at war, many of these soldiers have come home facing physical and psychological issues. Our service men and women are being released from the Armed Services yet, they are having trouble finding jobs and setting up a life after conflict. We need to do more for those who have put their life on the line. We need to offer support and opportunities for those who have defended our country. I will propose legislation that creates a VeteranCorps which will utilize our skilled solders put them back to work with good paying jobs and their full health benefits. These soldiers did their duty for us, now it is time for America to do its duty for them.
