“Today, I rise to celebrate this week as Invest in Veterans Week, as proclaimed by Montana Governor Gianforte. Currently, nearly 9% of the Treasure State's population is made up of veterans. There are over 78,000 veterans in Montana, the fifth-highest population of veterans per capita of any state. It's truly an honor and a privilege to represent a state so deeply rooted in military history. Businesses owned by veterans employ over 5 million people and generate over $1 trillion in revenue annually. Whether that be through storing their own farm ranch or small business, many of our nation's heroes come home to their families and communities ready and eager to find ways they can continue to benefit and serve our communities. By investing in our veterans, we're able to provide them with the resources that they need to continue to use their exceptional talents and skills that benefit all of us investing in our veterans should not be limited to just this week, but it should be our mission all year round. Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker; I yield back.”
