Working for veterans is one of Senator Murray’s top priorities in the Senate. As the daughter of a disabled World War II veteran and as a college intern at the Seattle VA psychiatric ward, Patty Murray knows personally the sacrifice that military service demands, and she knows personally the sacrifices that we all need to make for our veterans.
Senator Murray has been a tireless advocate for veterans, fighting for increased funding for veterans health care, increased benefits, housing assistance, new veterans clinics throughout Washington state, and accountability from the VA. She has fought for increased education benefits, expanded employment assistance, and reduced wait times for veterans with pending claims.
In this time of war, Senator Murray believes Congress and the VA must stand by the side of our veterans and wounded warriors when they return home, and work to make sure they get the care and support they deserve.
If you need assistance in dealing with the VA, we can help.Priorities
