As a veteran myself, I recognize the sacrifices that our military men and women make every day, both during and after their service. I intend to honor them through my work, and fight for them every chance I get.  

In the 115th Congress, I have cosponsored:

  • The WINGMAN Act, a bipartisan bill aimed at helping veterans through the claims process with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
  • The Reserve Component Benefits Parity Act, which addresses unequal compensation for reserve-component members who deploy.
  • The VA Employee Fairness Act of 2017, to modify authorities relating to the collective bargaining of employees in the Veterans Health Administration.
