Veterans

To everyone reading this page, please know that it is an honor to serve you – you have served us so well – and now it’s our time to serve you. There’s not much in Congress we do that’s more important than serving our veterans.
 

Ensuring that quality services are being delivered to each of you is one of my greatest missions as a public servant. I am happy to assist veterans with obtaining their military records and medals, with questions they have concerning eligibility for benefits provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or who may be experiencing difficulties with the VA Health Care System or the VA claims and appeals process.

I thank each of you for your service and can assure you that as long as I am in The Congress, your needs will remain a priority for me and my staff.

PDF iconA Privacy Act Release form will need to be completed and sent with a detailed explanation of your request for assistance to one of my district offices.

MyHealtheVet Update (COVID-19)

  1. Effective immediately, Veterans are discourage from arriving to the VA Medical Center/CBOC for “My HealtheVet In-Person Authentication”. This temporary pause of In-Person Authentication is intended to protect Veterans and VA care team members from the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) at VA facilities.
  2. Veterans can still upgrade their My HealtheVet accounts to Premium status online using a Sign-In Partner (DS Logon Premium or ID.me). For more information about how to upgrade to a Premium account using a Sign-In Partner, read the Upgrade to Premium article on the My HealtheVet website.
  3. Also for those veterans still having trouble upgrading to the premium status, they can contact the MHV Coordinator at (404) 202-7005 for assistance. 8am – 8pm.
