Supporting Our Veterans

As the daughter of a man who spent his career in the United States Air Force, I know first hand that supporting our veterans with world-class health care, strong pension benefits, and the tools to smoothly transition to civilian life are just as important as — and critical to — ensuring that we continue to have the strongest military in the world.

In the United States, those who’ve put themselves in harm’s way to protect their fellow Americans should never be without the care and support they need. Here’s my plan:

  • Work with the VA. The onus is on Congress to fund the Department of Veterans Affairs to succeed in delivering easy access to high-quality medical treatment and mental health care.

  • Protect the G.I Bill. Congress must ensure the G.I. Bill — and the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, which guarantees that all post-9/11 veterans have an opportunity to earn a college education — is continually appropriated the resources it needs to fund its goals.

  • Support military families. I know first hand the tremendous sacrifices made by the loved ones of those in uniform. In Congress I will support military spouses and children in their pursuit of education and jobs.
