Veterans

Those who put on the uniform in defense of our country make a selfless choice to dedicate their lives to something bigger than themselves – and they do it without asking for anything in return. But that has never stopped me from doing everything in my power to ensure Congress steps up to serve those who served us.

The good news is that the House of Representatives came together this week to pass eight new pieces of legislation to support veterans in Eastern Washington, including:

Whether it’s rolling out the red carpet at VA medical centers, expanding educational benefits, improving mental health services, or creating new business opportunities, we owe it to our veterans to help them live out the American Dream. My hope is that these bills help us take a small step towards achieving that mission.
