Veterans Issues

I am a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, my father is a Vietnam veteran, and my grandfather was a World War II veteran. Between my combat tours, I served at Arlington National Cemetery, where I performed funerals for our fallen veterans; I also took my soldiers to visit their wounded comrades at Walter Reed. I understand personally the sacrifices of our veterans and I will always ensure that we honor their service and patriotism.

I will work in Congress to uphold Abraham Lincoln’s injunction to “care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.” I will fight to preserve and protect veterans’ benefits, which are truly a form of deferred compensation for those who performed the highest service to our country. I will also work to ensure that the Department of Veterans Affairs modernizes its processes and has the resources needed to timely and accurately process benefits claims. I will promote veterans’ employment, both for reservists who are returning to civilian life and veterans leaving active duty. Finally, I will support measures to improve military quality of life for our veterans who are still serving and for their families, who sacrifice in their own right.
