Veterans and Military Families for Kaine
Veterans and Military Families for Kaine is composed of veteran leaders and military family members from across the Commonwealth of Virginia who have a deep understanding of the issues that are important to Virginia's veterans and military families. Veteran members include brave men and women that have served our country in all branches of the military, Guard, and Reserves, with service during peacetime and various foreign conflicts. They will help promote Tim Kaine’s candidacy for U.S. Senate by sharing with their family and friends Governor Kaine’s commitment to our military men and women, their families, and our veterans.
If elected to the U.S. Senate, Governor Kaine will continue the Virginia tradition of strong advocacy for military families and veterans by prioritizing the needs of current enlistees and honoring the promises made to our veterans. He understands that unemployment is an especially acute problem among our returning veterans, which is why he has been a vocal supporter of federal efforts to improve the educational and job opportunities available to veterans, including Senator Jim Webb’s post-9/11 GI Bill and the recently signed bipartisan “VOW to Hire Heroes Act.” He believes that the unique discipline and leadership skills possessed by our veterans make them ideal job candidates, and is committed to promoting veteran hiring and increasing accessibility to veterans services if elected to the U.S. Senate.
A Note from Senator Jim Webb
I am proud to join veterans from across Virginia in support of Governor Tim Kaine for the U.S. Senate.
Tim is committed to maintaining the respect for the service that America's veterans have given to our country, often at great risk and personal cost. As Governor, Tim championed Virginia's Wounded Warrior Initiative and signed it into law as well as securing funding for in-state tuition. As Senator, he will work hard to protect the compensation and benefits for our active-duty service members, as well as benefits for those veterans who served our country so bravely and so well in the past.
I grew up in the military, had the honor of serving our country as a United States Marine, and am very proud of the service of many other members of my family. These experiences have led me to focus on veterans issues for many years, and were a motivation for me to author the Post/911 GI Bill while serving here in the Senate.
I know that Tim Kaine will continue in this same vein, working to support our veterans and our military families. I could not be more proud than to have Tim Kaine succeed me in the Senate and continue the good work that Virginia's families deserve.
Please join me in supporting Governor Kaine.
