To everyone who has served in uniform, “thank you” does not begin to express my gratitude. The courage and selflessness that it takes to serve our country is beyond admirable, and our nation is indebted to you.

I believe the best way to honor our veterans is by providing the best support possible to these heroes and their families. We must keep them in mind as we continue to improve the VA, push to complete the VA hospital in Aurora, and provide overall support for everyone who has served our country.

This year, we should take “thank you” a step further. As a community, let’s take this opportunity to re-evaluate how we’re supporting our veterans and how we could improve. That’s my job as your Representative in Congress, and I’m re-committing myself to that priority this year.
