“As a co-sponsor of the Stolen Valor Act and a Gulf War veteran, I believe faking military service or heroism is appalling and applauded President Bush’s signing the bill into law last year. Electronic records are essential throughout the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs systems to ensure the seamless transition of veterans from the service into the VA; and electronic DD 214s would be helpful on many levels, in particular the prosecution of those who would steal the mantle of uniformed honor."
REP. STEVE BUYERS, R-IND, Ranking Veterans Affairs Committee member


The above quote from Congressman Buyers' Office was provided to Marine Corps Times in September 2007. We are hoping Mr. Buyers will be signing on as a co-sponsor VERY SOON now that we have a BILL. 
As Ranking Member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, his support could be MOST helpful.
