    Whether we’re aware of it or not, we’re constantly surrounded by heroes. Our heroes serve on the front lines to protect our freedoms, answer the call of duty, arrive on the scene in emergencies, and represent our communities as loyal friends and neighbors. During American Heroes Week, we recognize the heroes we know for the sacrifices they give to make our country a better place. For instance, take Sergeant Matthew Odom from Norman. Stationed as a part of the 1st Batallion, 279th Infantry Regime... Read more

    Roughly six months into the 115th Congress and more than 160 days into President Trump’s first term in the White House, the Republican-led House has passed more than 260 bills and the President has signed more than 40 bills into law. In true form, the People’s House is listening to the people and we hear you. That’s why we’ve passed reforms that make life simpler, easier, and better for veterans, ranchers, farmers, small business owners, job seekers, job creators, and every other American. We im...

    Washington is a town full of monuments and memorials dedicated to famous people, events, and presidents. Within just a few miles, there are tributes to President Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., President George Washington, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. They all accomplished heroic deeds and led our country through trying times. A handful of other memorials on the National Mall pay tribute to a group of Americans who led our country in another way. These memorials honor the men an... Read more

    It’s no secret that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has fallen into disrepair. A department created with the sole purpose to “care for him who shall have born the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” has faced significant challenges in fulfilling that mission for many of our veterans and their families. The men and women who have served our nation in the armed forces deserve quality, timely health care. Ranked second to last among large agencies, second to last in effective leaders... Read more

    In a time of division in our country, President Trump delivered optimism and hope at his first Joint Address to Congress on February 28.

He promised to shake up Washington, but told us that moving forward he would need Congress to work together to make a difference for our constituents back home. His speech aimed to remind us all that what unites us together is far more powerful than ... Read more

H.R. 42 would permit the Department of Veterans Affairs to contract with appropriate civilian healthcare accreditation or evaluation groups to investigate VA medical centers. The bill allows for greater transparency of VA medical centers and ensures that the healthcare our veterans receive is comparable to that of any private hospital. "The men and women of our armed forces deserve the best... Read more
