Veterans and their families have made immeasurable sacrifices in defense of our nation.  We must ensure that veterans have access to topnotch healthcare and can quickly and easily access other benefits such as disability compensation through the Veterans Administration.

I am committed to expanding services for South Texas veterans through the expansion of the VA Health Care Center at Harlingen to provide a full range of health care services to South Texas veterans.  I also believe it is important to establish a new Vet Center in Brownsville to help military members as they transition to civilian life.

My staff and I stand ready to assist veterans and their families who need assistance working with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies.  Please contact me if you need assistance from my office.  Additionally, I have compiled a resource page with useful information for veterans.
