Thank you to all the men and women who have so honorably served this nation.

Arizona is home to one of the largest populations of veterans in the country. In recent years, our veteran community has been shaken due to poor management by the Department of Veteran Affairs.  Regrettably, our Phoenix VA was ground-zero for many of the wait-time manipulations that prevented our veterans and families from receiving the care they deserve.  When our troops return from duty, I am committed to ensuring that they and their families have better access to healthcare, job assistance, and rehabilitation opportunities in the communities where they live. 

Providing veterans with the resources needed to live independent and productive lives is a priority for me, especially for those returning from war, who have made great personal sacrifices.  It is vitally important that services, including mental health resources, be available to support our veterans and their families. 

I continue to push for increased accountability within the VA and will continue to do everything in my power to ensure our veterans receive the care they earned in a timely manner.

You can hear more about my thoughts here on how our country can extend support to our veterans through phone and web resources.
