I am dedicated to helping our veterans. This is not a partisan situation. A country that commits its people to war must be prepared to take care of them once they come home. Idaho has more than 120,000 veterans -- about 10.4% of our adult population. We must ensure that they - and veterans across the country - receive the necessary physical and mental care, on-time and in-full benefits, and quick answers to their questions and concerns.
I am in frequent contact with Idaho veterans to gauge the impact of different policies being considered by Congress and the Administration. I rely on this feedback to best represent Idaho’s First District, and I encourage all veterans and their families to reach out to our office with questions, comments, or concerns.
My office is here to help veterans navigate complex federal government bureaucracies — including the Department of Veterans Affairs. In Idaho's First District, there are five VA facilities (Sandpoint, Caldwell, Grangeville, Lewiston, Coeur d’Alene), and the VA hospital in Boise serves many veterans in our district. If you run into any issues while working with the VA or tracking down your military records or medals, or any other issues with a federal agency, my office is here to go to bat for you.
Veterans History Project
We have also partnered with the Library of Congress for the Veterans History Project. This project allows our veterans to record their story and have their mementos preserved for future generations to learn from their experiences. If you would like to have your story recorded, please reach out to our office.
