As long as our brave servicemen and women are stationed across the globe, Chuck will continue to work to make sure they have the equipment and support they need to perform their missions. Equally vital is to make sure that support systems and focused services are available to them when they return.
One of Chuck’s main priorities in this area is ensuring our service members and their families receive comprehensive and effective support services when they return home. He has a strong track record of creating military housing, securing veterans benefits and improving the military healthcare system. Chuck also fought to increase funding for VA hospitals and clinics, while ensuring accountability so that veterans are treated with the respect and professionalism that they deserve.
