Congressman Hoyer’s top priority as a Member of Congress is advocating for policies that strengthen our national security, that protect our homeland from attack, and that keep the American people safe. He is a strong supporter of investing more in programs that adequately equip our first responders and increase protections at our ports and borders. He is a leader in Congress on national security issues and his commitment to our armed services and veterans is unwavering.
Furthermore, Rep. Hoyer has been a strong advocate for our veterans, and has worked tirelessly to ensure that America’s veterans receive the care and benefits they earned by their service. He also was one of the original sponsors of the legislation that created the Veterans History Project.
Last year, Congressman Hoyer was named one of the American Legion’s “Unsung Heroes” of the 108th Congress for his efforts to ensure that veterans’ health care is affordable and accessible, and his support for investment in the programs and services veterans deserve.
Congressman Hoyer has also worked to protect the military installations in Southern Maryland (see BRAC issues page.)
