Veterans

Veterans across the Central Valley have made huge sacrifices to keep our nation safe. When service members come home, they deserve every opportunity to succeed.

However, too many of our veterans are left without a place to live, relevant job training, or facing unreasonable wait times for care. That’s why I’m working to guarantee that our veterans get the benefits and high quality care they’ve earned and are able to lead fulfilling lives. If you’re a veteran and need help with VA benefits, lost medals, or anything else, please contact our office
