Military and Veterans Issues

For hundreds of years our nation’s men and women in uniform have made great sacrifices to defend our freedoms and keep America safe and secure.  Today, our servicemen and women continue that proud tradition. I will always fight to support our active duty troops, honor our veterans’ service, and ensure that all of these brave men and women receive the welcome arms and support they deserve when they come home.

I am proud to serve as the representative for the United States Military Academy at West Point. It is an honor to represent such a venerable institution that continues to produce our nation’s next generation of military leaders.

If you or your loved one is a veteran or service member, my office is here to help you with any issues related to your veterans’ benefits or other issues related to service so please contact our office at 845-561-1259 or fill out this form

For more information concerning my work to support our Veterans, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
