Supporting our veterans and protecting our military is not just a duty but a profound honor. I am unwavering in my commitment to ensuring our brave servicemen and women receive the care, respect, and gratitude they deserve for their selfless sacrifice. I firmly believe in bolstering our military capabilities to defend our nation and uphold peace around the world. This includes advocating for adequate funding, modern equipment, and comprehensive training for our armed forces.
Moreover, we must prioritize providing our veterans with the highest standard of care and support as they transition back to civilian life. Access to quality healthcare, education, and employment opportunities is crucial to honoring their service and ensuring a successful post-military life. That’s why I supported the VA Mission Act, which allows for the expansion of private care for veterans as an alternative to the VA system.
