Veterans and Military Families


As the leader of the free world, the United States of America boasts a military with unparalleled pride, tradition, and history. Our brave and dedicated servicemembers and their families make significant sacrifices to protect our freedoms, both at home and abroad.

As such, our country has no higher commitment than to take care of our active duty military, their families, and our veterans. We must honor the promises and commitments we have made to our military veterans and ensure the necessary services and care are always available and delivered in a timely fashion. This includes adequate and safe equipment, health care and counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injuries, and other service-related ailments, employment opportunities and job training, post-service workforce development and transition resources, as well as the disability and retirement benefits our veterans have earned through their courageous service.

Ohio's 12th Congressional District is home to the 179th Airlift Wing, a unit of the Ohio Air National Guard stationed at Mansfield Lahm Air National Guard Base, and the headquarters of The American Legion Department of Ohio. With 850 thousand military veterans across our state, I am honored to serve those heroes living in Ohio's 12th Congressional District, and I will continue to advocate for policies that serve our veterans and military families.
