After watching my father struggle with the complex and inconvenient Veterans Affairs system, I felt a personal responsibility to improve veterans’ access to care. No veteran should have to drive hours to a medical clinic just to be faced with long wait times and inadequate support.
During my time in Congress I have worked hard to improve access to care for veterans by helping pass legislation authorizing funding for four new Veterans Affairs clinics in Tennessee. As a result veterans have not only experienced more timely assistance, but they have also received more specialized services like dental and eye care.
In addition to providing easier access to care, I have made it a priority to regularly meet with the hard-working veterans who are the backbone of our great nation. As your Congressman, please know I will continue to work towards ensuring veterans get the care they so rightly deserve.
