My Position on Veterans Affairs

As a proud veteran of the United States Army and a Member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, I know all too well the sacrifices our brave men and women in uniform make to preserve our freedoms. Our veterans go overseas leaving their families and loved ones behind to keep the homeland safe and fight our enemies. They sacrifice life and limb in service to our nation and when they return home, they do not receive the care they deserve. Dozens of veterans take their life every day in this country. That is a national tragedy that we must end. We are the greatest country in the world, and we can do better than that – we owe it to our veterans to do better than that.

 I am proud to serve as the Ranking Member of Subcommittee on Disability Assistance & Memorial Affairs (DAMA). This Subcommittee has a legislative, oversight, and investigative jurisdiction over the Veterans Benefit Administration (VBA), Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA), National Cemetery Administration (NCA), American Battle Monument Commission (ABMC), Arlington National Cemetery (ANC), and Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
