Veterans & Military

There is no commitment more important to our country than that of defending it, as millions of brave men and women have done. Our veterans are the heroes of our nation and deserve to be treated as such for being staunch defenders of our freedom. It is shameful that returning veterans often lack job opportunities, access to education, and critical healthcare services, and it is even more shameful that some of our heroes are left homeless and unemployed. In Congress, Representative Van Drew is fighting to reverse these failures and will work tirelessly until this is no longer the sad reality for the brave men and women of our military.

Amid the 2019 government shutdown, Rep. Van Drew has vehemently fought to pay the brave men and women in uniform.
