My grandfather was a World War II veteran and I believe America has the most talented and remarkable military on the planet. There is simply never enough we can do as a country to show our support and appreciation to our veterans. They have risked the ultimate sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedoms guaranteed by the constitution and without these brave men and women, America, the land of the free, would cease to exist. We owe them an unpayable debt of gratitude.
- Veteran Affairs Oversight: When elected, I will support all efforts to expand opportunities for our veterans to receive healthcare inside and outside of the VA system. If the VA isn’t working for our veterans, then we need to allow our vets to seek effective care elsewhere.
- Mental Health: Today, veterans are 22% more likely to commit suicide or suffer from mental illness. As a member of Congress, I will support continued efforts to expand mental health treatment options to our great veterans.
- Education and Workforce: I will work to expand educational opportunities for veterans to ensure they are well-equipped to thrive in our economy once they transition into civilian life.
