My father was a World War II veteran, and I never forgot the lesson he impressed upon me of honoring those who have served our country. Our veterans have put their lives on the line to protect everything we hold dear, and they deserve the absolute best we can provide.  As I work to make our government more effective and efficient, I will fight to ensure Hoosier veterans get access to the resources they need and deserve.  We owe it to them.

Below are links to services and a brief description of what they provide to veterans.
