Veterans

Nevada is home to more than 300,000 veterans who have faithfully served our nation and defended freedom in America. These men, women and their families have dedicated their lives and made significant sacrifices to protect the United States, and deserve our debt and gratitude. As a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the Senate Veterans Jobs Caucus, I am committed to making sure that America’s brave heroes receive the benefits and care they have earned and deserve. 

Veterans, especially those in Nevada, face a number of challenges, including high unemployment, a struggling housing market, and too often, homelessness.   Congress has a responsibility to enact policies that will help veterans overcome these difficulties and ensure that the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans’ Affairs have the resources necessary to meet the growing needs of Nevada and our nation’s veteran communities.  I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee to develop legislation that provides veterans the best care possible in gratitude for their service.
