Veterans

"I am proud to support those who served our country in the military. The contributions they make to our lives cannot be overstated. My son Michael joined the service shortly after 9/11, and caring for our men and women in uniform is a deep personal priority. Please be in touch for assistance with veterans issues and to share your comments and concerns." - Congressman Jerry McNerney
