Defense and Veterans

Our men and women in uniform represent the best of America, so they deserve the best that America has to offer. I support continuing President Trump's America First policies that gave our armed forces the tools they need to uphold their oath to support and defend the Constitution safely and effectively. 

I support President Trump's defense policies that put Americans first, rebuilt our military, crushed terrorist organizations, and stood up to our adversaries by building American dominance in sea, air, land, and even space by establishing the U.S. Space Force. I will fight to keep the military's strong posture to counter rising threats from terrorists, China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.

Additionally, I stand with our home-front heroes—military spouses and their families. Our service members sacrifice so much for our Nation, and their families deserve to be taken care of.

My support for the members of our military does not end when their service is complete. Scripture says, "give to everyone what you owe them...if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor." We owe our veterans a debt of gratitude that we can never repay. Colorado is home to one of the largest veteran populations in the Nation—many of whom reside in rural areas, and I will always take steps to ensure our Nation's veterans and their families are treated fairly.

Our veterans deserve the best care from the V.A., and they also should have access to Veterans' Choice and other programs that allow them to receive the private treatment they need. The V.A. should offer accountable, transparent, accessible, and quality care while working to reduce bureaucracy and waste.
