We must honor the sacrifices of our brave men and women in the armed forces. As the wife of a veteran and the step-mother of two military personnel, I know the importance of making sure our troops have what they need when they come home.
I voted in favor of the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Our veterans deserve greater access to a higher education or vocational training.
I voted to provide retroactive financial payments to those service members which were stop-lossed
I co-sponsored a bill to raise basic military pay for active duty service members by 3.4 percent.
I also support comprehensive chiropractic care for all veterans.
I have called for Congressional hearings on the Miami VA's failure to notify veterans who were at risk of infection as a result of contaminated colonoscopy equipment.
I authored legislation awarding the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) the Congressional Gold Medal. These women pioneers were denied recognition of their service during World War II.
