Veterans Issues

Our state is home to over 50,000 veterans. They are a testament to the greatest love of country, and are truly the pride of North Dakota. The greatest privilege of my public service is the time I am able to spend with those who have served our country.

While I believe steps must be taken to reduce our national debt, the veterans of our military should not be asked to bear the brunt of these reductions. I will work in Congress to deal with our fiscal problems without invoking cuts to critical services for United States military personnel. I care deeply for our veterans and share your desire to ensure they receive the very best treatment and care from active duty through retired life.

Veterans looking for employement in North Dakota, or employers looking to hire veterans can contact a Veterans Job Specialist at Job Service ND.
