This Saturday, November 11, is Veterans Day, and I ask you to join me in honoring our veterans and service members who have given so much to this nation. We are forever indebted to them for their willingness to serve and protect our freedom.
For nearly a century, November 11 has been a day of appreciation for America’s service members. On this day, communities across the country pay tribute to the incredible sacrifices that these men, women, and their families made in service of our country. It is also an opportunity to reaffirm our responsibility to take care of those who have given so much for our security.
This is why I continue to stand up for our veterans and fight to ensure they receive the benefits they have earned through their selfless service to our great country. We must protect their access to affordable and quality healthcare, and provide them with the resources needed to pursue educational opportunities and quality jobs when they return home.
As a Member of Congress, it is an honor to serve the great men and women who sacrificed their safety to protect our way of life. Since taking office, my staff has helped 2,533 veterans resolve problems with federal agencies and over $2,707,745 in benefits.
The mission of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is to care for those who have served. Unfortunately, some veterans are forced to wait too long to receive the assistance they need and deserve, and others struggle through unexpected hurdles when they seek care or compensation from the VA. When this happens, my staff is there to step in on your behalf and help you receive the benefits earned through your service.
As your representative in Congress, I am committed to ensuring that every veteran receives the benefits they have earned. Please do not hesitate to contact my office if you have an issue related to accessing your veterans’ benefits or any other issue with a federal agency.
Member of Congress
