From serving in the State Senate on the Board of Veterans Services to my time in Congress, I have fought for the 730,000 veterans and their families who call Virginia their home.
I believe we should never send our men and women into war without ensuring the care and resources they and their families need is in place when they return home.
In the State Senate, I supported measures that increased resources for mental health services for active duty and retired military, expanded veteran entrepreneurship programs, eradicated veteran homelessness in Virginia, made it easier for service members to vote while serving overseas, and lowered tuition and fees while expanding veterans’ resources on community college campuses.
In Congress, I continue to be an advocate for our active duty military, veterans, and their families. I support establishing veterans courts across the country, expanding access to health care and mental health services, fully funding and reforming the VA, and providing college, training, and workforce development programs so our veterans and their spouses can obtain good paying jobs.
I’m proud to have supported the bipartisan Honoring Our PACT Act, which was signed into law by President Biden, to deliver care and benefits for toxic-exposed veterans – one of the most significant expansions of health care and benefits for our veterans in years.
