Military and Veterans
We must ensure that our government makes good on its obligation to provide them with adequate health care, educational and career opportunities, and other support services. We must also ensure that those who continue to serve on active duty have the support they need from back home, whether it is adequate protective equipment, compensation for extended or repeated tours of duty, or sufficient training and recuperation time between tours.
I firmly believe that, while we must work to reduce the deficit and eliminate the debt, we must ensure that our national checkbook is not balanced on the backs of men and women who have served–and sacrificed–for our country.
As a member of the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Appropriations, I have fought over the years to ensure that the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) have the resources they need to meet the needs of service members and veterans in the Fourth District and across the country.
