Those who have served our country deserve our utmost gratitude and respect. They have made sacrifices and dedicated years of their lives to keep us and our country safe. My father was a WWII Navy veteran and my brothers and uncles all served in the U.S. Army.

I make every effort to ensure that our veterans get the support and services they have earned in protecting our country. This is an issue I care deeply about. At the state level, we have been able to pass some good, practical legislation to support our former servicemen and women. Especially near and dear to my heart was SB21-026 – the Restoration of Honor Act, which gave veterans who had been unfairly discharged for their LGBTQ+ status access to Colorado state programs and benefits.
