Veterans

I believe you can measure the character of a nation by the way they treat their veterans – we have a lot of character building to do in America.

I am committed to fighting for those who fought for our freedoms and restoring a culture of respect for all who wore the uniform. We must fix the broken bureaucracy of the V.A. to ensure our nation’s heroes are receiving the quality services they deserve.

Texas District 19 is home to a system of crucial V.A. facilities and more than 46,000 men and women who have served the United States in the Armed Forces. I am proud to serve each of them on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity.
