Dear Congressman Cook and Senator Feinstein,

As United States military veterans and military family members, we have made great sacrifices to protect our nation. We also are residents of and neighbors to the California desert region. We write to thank you for your service to our nation and request that you work together for passage through Congress of the California Desert Conservation and Recreation Act of 2015.

We support the protection of the California desert and ensuring that the public is able to access and enjoy this special place. The California desert is a shared resource that contributes to keeping our air and water clean, and offers places for our families and kids to get outdoors and spend time together hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, exploring, and otherwise enjoying the outdoors. Protecting the desert also attracts visitors who support our local economy.

As veterans, we deeply appreciate that these protected public lands are also important places to recuperate from the stresses of overseas missions. They contribute to our well-being and allow us to reconnect with family and friends and help us reintegrate into civilian life.

We hope you will work together in the next Congress for passage of the California Desert Protection Act of 2015.
