On Veterans Day, Franken Advocates For The Men and Women Who Served [VIDEO]

Minnesota Senator Al Franken has a special message on Veteran’s Day — honor the men and women who have served by ensuring that they “can find a home and a job, recover from physical and psychological wounds, and take advantage of the benefits they were promised when they enlisted benefits they have earned with their courageous sacrifices.”

Watch his message below.

Thanks, Al.

This should go without saying, but Republicans in Congress were actually balking at improving vet benefits. It took folks like Franken to hold their feet to the fire.

Too often veterans are forgotten. Al Franken is a rare, decent politician. I'm glad he spoke up .

How is it, that this idea is at all revolutionary?
Sanity, oh dear sweet sanity. It's an oasis right here.

This is one of a handful of politicians I actually like, along with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. He is not afraid to stand up to the powers that be and call a spade a spade in their faces, but does so with dignity honesty and eloquence. I am a big fan of Al Franken and wish we had many more politicians of his caliber and quality.

Al Franken, a Minnesotan to be proud of!
