Dear Sean,

The House of Representatives faces a historic choice tomorrow when it votes on whether or not to pass the New GI Bill. This vote decides whether our nation will honor its newest generation of veterans and invest in the future of the men and women who have been serving in harm's way. We need your help today.

At this crucial point in the process, please take a minute to call your representative in the House and tell them to vote for the New GI Bill.
