Gunderson continued, “Your quiet but effective leadership in both Houses of Congress, and most recently as Chair of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, has produced a legacy that has changed `many, many lives in a positive way.”
CECU shared that Senator Isakson’s recent work on the Post 9/11 GI Bill benefit program has produced incredible results in his home state of Georgia and across the United States. Because of his work, 7,351 student veterans pursued their career education at one of our sector’s 135 schools in Georgia. These students used no less than $68 million in GI Bill benefits for education and fees to achieve the career skills of their dreams – and the credentials enabling them to succeed professionally in their life ahead.
Senator Isakson has set a standard for leadership and public service that is to be admired by all. We wish him well in retirement.
