Our wounded veterans should not have to choose between
earning their paycheck and receiving treatment for their combat injuries. For
too many of our wounded heroes, this choice is a cold reality.
The Wounded Warriors Federal Leave Act would give veterans
who are new federal employees time to receive treatment during their first year
of employment for wounds they suffered in service to our great nation.
This legislation must be
passed into law so that American veterans can receive care they have earned and
desperately need before sick time is accrued.
