America’s veterans served to keep us safe and protect our freedoms. I am committed to ensuring they receive the full education, housing, and health care benefits that they have earned through their service.

As then-Chair of the Veteran Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, I was proud to help pass the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act – to provide long overdue recognition, screening, and treatment for toxic exposure related conditions – and successfully block the closure of the VA’s community-based outpatient clinics--or CBOCs for short—in Gallup, Las Vegas, Española, and Raton. I’ve also been proud to assist service members, veterans, and their families in obtaining replacement medals and awards, medals and awards earned but never received, copies of military service records, and military discharge documents through my Medal Retrieval Assistance efforts. And I’ve been honored to help hundreds of service members and veterans across New Mexico access their VA health care and benefits. If you or a family member are experiencing trouble filing a claim, receiving benefits, accessing health benefits or military records, or other issues, please contact my office by calling (505) 346-6601 or by visiting my Veterans Resources Center.
