Our Veterans made the ultimate sacrifice of putting country before self. These men and women, and their families, deserve our support. Congresswoman Scanlon is determined to ensure that every veteran gets the benefits they are due, whether that means good treatment at the VA, access to education, training, and employment services, or financial planning and assistance.

 

Congresswoman Scanlon has supported bipartisan legislation to expand access to benefits for veterans affected by Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, measures to help homeless veterans receive housing, and legislation to ensure that spouses and families of deceased veterans are given the benefits they deserve.
