New Jersey's 10th Congressional District is home to more than 21,000 veterans and their families. One of the most important duties of our federal government is to care for the men and women who have bravely served and sacrificed on behalf of our country. I am deeply committed to ensuring that our service men, women, and their families receive the support and respect that they deserve when they return home from war or after making the ultimate sacrifice in the battlefield. This includes providing the best possible healthcare, educational, and employment resources available.
In the 113th Congress, I have proudly partnered with Soldier On and the Department of Veterans' Affairs to secure more than $2 million to Essex and Hudson Counties in helping to end veterans’ homelessness. I have also been a vocal advocate in working to address the backlog of VA claims so that our service members and veterans receive the benefits that they have earned and that they deserve in a timely manner.
