Supporting Our Military, Veterans and Allies

Fred’s father was a Korean War veteran and his brother served 29 years in the Army. A passionate supporter of our nation’s veterans, Fred understands that we would not enjoy the freedoms we do today without the men and women of our Armed Forces, many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice for the protection of their fellow citizens, our nation, and the world.

To support local veterans, Fred regularly hosts a veterans field service officer from the American Legion at his state House legislative district office to help veterans with education, pension, health care and other issues.

 As a member of Congress, Fred will support legislation that ensures our sons and daughters in uniform have the resources they need to safely and successfully fulfill their mission and receive the care and treatment they deserve following their service.
