subject A response to your e-mail from Rep. Zack Space

Dear Mr. Caverley,

Thank you for contacting me with
your support for S. 3447, the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Improvements Act of 2010. I
would also like to thank you for your service to our nation.

As you know, S. 3447 was introduced
by Sen. Daniel Akaka on May 27, 2010. This bill would improve and expand educational assistance for
veterans who served in the Armed Forces after September 11, 2001. S. 3447 has been referred to the Senate
Committee on Veterans' Affairs. Because I am not a member of the Senate, I will not have the opportunity
to vote on this bill unless and until similar legislation comes to the House floor.

In the meantime, please know that
as a member of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, I believe we must do everything possible to
provide our nation's veterans with all the resources they were promised. Part of fulfilling our promise
to our nation's heroes is to ensure that they are given all the tools necessary to not only re-adjust
to civilian life, but also to continue achieving success through education and professional development.
That's why I cosponsored the Post-9/11 GI Bill legislation and worked to see it become law. I will continue
supporting measures that provide our veterans with the resources to further their educations.
Thanks again for taking
the time to get involved. Please don't hesitate to contact me again in the future.
