Military and Veterans

The United States military is the most powerful force for good in the world, and troops and facilities in Colorado are a big reason why. All of Colorado's military installations, including Fort Carson, the Air Force Academy, and Buckley, Peterson, and Schriever Air Force Bases, are on the cutting edge of military readiness and protecting our national security.

I will always fight to protect and grow the presence of the United States military in Colorado and will work to ensure that these bases, which are essential to both national security and Colorado communities, remain strong.

We must also ensure that our commitment to our men and women in uniform goes beyond active service. Colorado is home to over 400,000 veterans, and there is no more important mission of our federal government than to provide for those who served our country in uniform.  We must uphold our commitments to our veterans and ensure they are receiving the care they need and deserve. Additionally, I will continue to hold federal agencies accountable for waste and abuse of resources devoted to veterans.
