Commitment to Our Armed Forces
Jared has profound respect for the men and women bravely serving in our military throughout the world. In order for the institution to retain the best and the brightest in all fields, he helped lead the fight to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
Jared believes that support for our military involves a commitment to care for that individual both in the line of duty and after his or her return home. It is Congress's responsibility to ensure the U.S. government is keeping its promise to veterans and military families across the country.
As your Representative, Jared has worked with the Colorado congressional delegation, and numerous veterans organizations in Colorado to advocate for more accountability in the VA and for oversight during the creation and construction of the Denver VA Medical Center at the University of Colorado hospital complex in Aurora.
Jared supports a robust, efficient, and transparent Department of Veterans Affairs that provides veterans with timely, high-quality health care—regardless of where they live or how much money they have. Jared is working tirelessly to ensure that veterans all across the country – including Colorado's 413,000 veterans – have access to quality educational opportunities and job training programs that cater to their diverse needs.
