CARING FOR AMERICAN HEROES

Dear Friend,

I strongly believe that veterans of the United States military should receive timely access to care, deserve to have their physical and invisible wounds of war treated, and shouldn’t have to wait by the telephone for months waiting on disability decisions.

I am making these efforts to ensure our veterans are being cared for properly.

Expanding Access to Care, Treatment, and Benefits

The House took historic action recently by voting to expand GI Bill benefits for life. The Harry W.

In an effort to assist veterans coping with mental health issues, the House passed the No Hero Left Untreated Act (H.R. 1162), which will create a pilot program to explore Magnetic Resonant Therapy as a method of treating veterans. Magnetic Resonant Therapy has been used successfully to treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and TBI.
