Veterans

Our brave and loyal troops put their lives on the line for our country. When they return home, we owe them a debt of gratitude that can never truly be repaid. Our young men and women deserve a quality life and we must support them. Rep. Horfsord believes that veterans should have access to quality education, health care, affordable housing and the services they need to transition back to civilian life . Too many veterans currently return home and are unable to access quality health care and crisis intervention services. After everything our veterans sacrifice to protect our nation, it is our responsibility to provide them with access to quality, affordable education so they may productive lives when they return home.

Families of veterans, too, deserve recognition for the sacrifices they make.
