The VETT Act Passes the House

As advocates for the educational empowerment of our Veterans, we are thrilled to witness a significant stride forward in supporting those who have served our nation. Yesterday, the House passed the Veterans Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VETT) Act, a needed piece of legislation aimed at streamlining access to educational opportunities for our Veterans.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Representative Van Orden (R-WI) and all those in the House who championed this critical bill. Their dedication to the well-being and success of our Veterans is commendable, and their efforts have not gone unnoticed. The VETT Act represents a crucial investment in the future of our Veterans, offering them access to high-quality technology education and training that can pave the way for rewarding careers in a rapidly evolving job market.

By providing Veterans with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in technology-related fields, the VETT Act not only honors their service but also unlocks immense potential for their professional growth and economic prosperity. More importantly, we know that quick and seamless transitions into meaningful civilian careers are paramount for reducing the risk of death by suicide in the Veteran community. 

While we celebrate this significant milestone, we urge the Senate to swiftly follow suit and pass the VETT Act without delay. Every day of delay is a missed opportunity to empower our Veterans with the education and training they deserve.
