Veterans

Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District is proud to be one of our nation’s most military-intensive congressional districts and home to tens of thousands of veterans who have served our country with distinction and honor. The countless sacrifices of our veterans have given us the freedom, prosperity, and way of life that makes our country the greatest in the world. Our district is blessed to have them as a part of our community.  How we treat our veterans influences the willingness of individuals to join our national defense.
 

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation.”  

-George Washington

 

In my work on the House Armed Services Committee, I have been a constant advocate for our troops and veterans. I remain steadfast in fighting for better pay and full funding for our troops so that they can receive elite training and equipment.
 
Further, we must ensure our veterans have access to uncompromised, timely, and unsurpassed care.  The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) operates the largest integrated healthcare system in the United States, and should be one of America’s greatest priorities. It is imperative that we use this resource to maximize care for those who have given so much.
  
Rest assured, I will continue my work to increase the quality of veteran and active duty military care to Missourians. Veterans put their lives on the line to preserve our nation’s freedom, and we owe them an immeasurable debt of gratitude.
