From his web site: Lentz, on veterans -- As a fourth generation Army veteran and former Army Airborne Ranger, Bryan recognizes the obligation of every American to respect and honor the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform and their families. They risk everything to preserve our freedom, and they deserve every opportunity to get a quality education and a good job when their time in uniform is done. Bryan supported the Workforce Development Act, which would help active-duty National Guard and Reservists receive job training, and he was the prime sponsor of legislation that would exempt all permanently disabled veterans from paying property taxes.
