Veterans

America’s veterans have sacrificed so much for our country; it’s critical we work every day to recognize their service and give them every opportunity we can. During my time in Congress, I’ve met with countless veterans from across Burlington and Ocean Counties. Whether it’s fighting to hold the VA accountable for failing to deliver a veterans' health facility to Ocean County or improving access to good jobs, I’m dedicated to supporting and honoring our veterans.
