President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed four bills that support veterans ahead of his Minnesota trip to talk infrastructure - all while uncertainty over the Omicron strain of COVID grows. 

The president, surrounded by groups of Republican and Democratic lawmakers, signed four bipartisan bills into law that are aimed at helping veterans and military families by addressing disparities in benefits, creating recruiting programs, reducing education costs for surviving families and addressing mental health.

'We only have one truly sacred obligation in my view and that is to care for those we sent into harm's way, care for their families when they're gone, and care for them and their families when they're home,' Biden said.

'That's a lifetime commitment, a lifetime commitment the nation owes to every one of our veterans,' he added.
