Issa Introduces Bipartisan Resolution Recognizing Veterans Service Organizations
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) and Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives to recognize the historic contributions and patriotism of our nation’s Veterans Service Organizations. Issa stated:
“Millions of devoted Americans volunteer with Veterans Service Organizations each year, acting as indispensable partners to the government in delivering for our military, our veterans and their families. Without their work, necessary services including key financial support and vital personal arrangements would simply not get done. We should take this time to recognize their countless contributions and enduring dedication on behalf of those who have given so much to us.”
Issa was joined in introduction with cosponsor Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13), who added: “I’ve worked with Veteran’s Service Organizations throughout my time in Congress. The sole purpose of these groups is to support servicemembers, past and present, from across Ohio and the entire country. The federal government cannot do it alone – these are the Americans that do the hard work. They are true patriots.”
Other original cosponsors include: Representatives Banks, Fitzpatrick, McClintock, Vargas, Grothman, Gaetz, Posey, Budd, Joyce, Valadao, Mast, Franklin, DesJarlais, Babin, Obernolte, Dunn, Steel, LaMalfa, Chabot, Feenstra, Allen, Tenney, Norman, Young, Stefanik, Cawthorn, Wenstrup, Bishop (NC), Baird.
Issa is a veteran of the U.S. Army. The 50th Congressional District is adjacent to Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, near multiple Southern California military bases, and home to thousands of veterans.
