Military And Veterans
As a doctor who has helped care for veterans, I've seen firsthand how much they've sacrificed for us. After giving so much for our country and our safety, the least we can do is make sure they have access to basic resources. The high rates of unemployment and homelessness among veterans are unacceptable. It's troubling that many veterans face long wait times to access their hard-earned benefits and unnecessary bureaucracy is often to blame for delaying their access to quality medical care. We must do a better job of ensuring that our troops and vets have the support services and opportunities they've earned. They deserve nothing less than our unwavering support.
I'm proud that my local office has helped Sacramento County Veterans recover more than $2.9 million in benefits and services they were owed.
