Veterans

As the daughter of two military veterans, a mother who served in the Navy and a father who was a 30-year combat veteran, I know the struggles military families face and I'm working to ensure the VA has the resources to address the challenges veterans in New Mexico face. 

Through my work on the House Armed Services Committee, I've advocated to ensuring military service members and their families have the services they need, and that our military have opportunities when they return home. 

I'm committed to working for our veterans so they receive the benefits and the care they have earned. If you or a veteran you know is experiencing difficulties with their veteran's benefits, please contact my office to see how we can help.
