Veterans -- as a veteran I have great respect for our men and women in uniform. As our military members make the transition to civilian life we must honor their service to our country by doing all we can to make Michigan a leader in the treatment of veterans. Michigan currently has an unemployment rate that outpaces the nation, as state representative I will work to reverse this trend.
*Military numbers are going to decrease with the wars drawing down, many are going to come back home and be in need of assistance.
*Incentives for employers to hire veterans.
*Assistance for employment, education, physical health, and mental health.
