Welcome to Veterans Day Edition of Catch Up With Young Kim, my weekly e-newsletter to get you the latest on my work for you in Congress.

As a wife and sister of veterans, I know that I am here because of our veterans who sacrificed their safety and security for the sake of ours. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

For our veterans, the fight often does not end after the return home. As your Representative in Congress, I’m committed to ensuring we keep our promises to the brave men and women who served in our nation’s uniform. My team and I are working around the clock to ensure the 27,000 military veterans across California’s 39th District receive the care and resources they have rightfully earned.

If you ever need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to my office. I also encourage you to receive real-time updates on my work for you in Congress by following me on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram at @RepYoungKim. 
My team stands ready to serve you. We can provide assistance with the VA and other federal agencies, connect you to local resources, provide Congressional recognitions and advocate on your behalf at the federal level. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
My Wounded Warrior Fellow and Military and Veterans Liaison Brendon Moeller recently started in my district office to assist our local veterans. A West Point graduate, Brendon commissioned into the U.S. Army in 2013 and was stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina and Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He deployed overseas three times – twice to the Middle East and once to Africa. He completed eight years on active duty and subsequently completed a master’s degree at the University of Southern California.

Brendon is excited to be back home and to work with fellow veterans. To reach Brendon, please call my Placentia office at (714) 984-2440 or email him at brendon.moeller@mail.house.gov, and he will be happy to assist you.
For years, local veterans have been fighting for a dignified final resting place in Orange County. Building a veteran cemetery in Orange County has been an issue close to my heart and a priority of mine since my time in the State Assembly.

I am glad to see this project come closer to fruition as all 34 cities in Orange County passed resolutions in support of the construction of a veteran’s cemetery at Gypsum Canyon in Anaheim Hills.

There is more work to be done, but I will continue to support this project and do my part to ensure we see a completed Veteran Cemetery in Anaheim Hills.
As a member of the House Small Business Committee and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Workforce Development, I am committed to supporting veteran-owned businesses and ensuring our entrepreneurs have the resources they need to succeed. Last week, I was proud to help lead a House Resolution to celebrate our nation’s 2.5 million veteran entrepreneurs who employ roughly 5 million Americans.
As your Representative in Congress, I am working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to advocate for our veterans. I have signed onto over 15 bills to support veterans, and am proud that three have passed the House, two have passed both chambers and one has become law.
My Congressional office is working to help to honor all of our Vietnam veterans with recognition through the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration program.

If you served in the military during the Vietnam War era (between November 1st, 1955 and May 15th, 1975) – or if you have a family member, friend, or neighbor who served – please visit my website to complete the veteran information form. My Office will follow-up to extend appreciation for their service!
