Connecting Veterans with Resources They Earned

Feb 09, 2023
Veterans

Veteran service officers are often the only lifeline connecting veterans and their families with the benefits they earned in service to our country. This is especially true in rural communities where a shortage of VSOs is resulting in too many veterans slipping through the cracks.  

No one who has put on the uniform should ever feel this way. That’s why I reintroduced the bipartisan Commitment to Veteran Support and Outreach (CVSO) Act today to help connect veterans with the resources they earned by funding additional Veterans Service Officers in our communities. 

While this bill won’t fix everything, the long overdue investment it makes is a critical first step towards ensuring no veteran ever gets left behind again. We got this bill through the House last Congress, so I’m hopeful we can get it to the president’s desk and signed into law this time around.
