As an American Soldier, my greatest honor was serving with our men and women in uniform, our veterans, and their families.

For many years I’ve supported the Veteran’s hospital and organizations. As a veteran who benefits from the services and care at the VA in Iowa, I understand the need to raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and soldier suicides, and I will fight to ensure active military personnel and their families have the resources they need to strengthen their resolve.

The VA should treat our veterans as the VIP clients they are. There is no excuse for months-long delays in service. As Congressman, I will ensure the VA and its workforce are accountable to respond quickly and fully to veterans’ needs and provide first-class service. I will deliver high quality and timely constituent services to our veterans as one of my highest priorities.
