Veterans

Southeast Wisconsin is home to more than 45,000 veterans. It is critical we support them and their families. Helping our veterans should never be a partisan issue. Our American heroes’ service and sacrifice must never be forgotten. I will always work for our veterans, ensure they have access to the benefits they’ve earned, and work to increase access to health care and mental health resources for veterans and their families.  

In Congress, it is my priority to help veterans in Southeast Wisconsin. Our office brought on board a Wounded Warrior Fellow who is dedicated to working with veterans or members of the military who need assistance. If you are a veteran or servicemember that needs help, please reach out to my office.
