NEWBURGH – Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY18) Saturday
called on House members to pass his Wounded Warrior Employment Improvement
Act. The bill would direct the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve
job training and rehabilitation for veterans with service-connected disabilities.

Speaking at Mount Saint Mary’s College in Newburgh, Maloney said
his legislation would reduce unemployment among disabled vets by requiring
the VA to reduce caseloads, increase enrollment in education programs,
and implement a new training program for staff working with wounded warriors.

“It is unacceptable that the brave men and women who sacrifice so
much in service to our country are returning home from battle only to
struggle to find a job,” Maloney said. “We must make these
commonsense reforms to the VA’s key employment program to support
these wounded warriors and ensure our highly skilled veterans secure employment
upon their return to civilian life.”

Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus, a MSMC graduate and Navy Reserve
officer, supports the measuring saying the government should do all it
can to support veterans.
