More on Veterans
Time goes by quickly, months have passed since the New Year has come in and it’s already Spring. As I travel around the Third District, folks share with me how they and their families are benefiting from the new tax relief law, how their businesses - small and large - are feeling freer from burdensome regulations, and how they are feeling optimistic about the future.
For more than 200 years, in communities across the country, brave and selfless women and men have stepped up to serve our country by donning the uniform and putting their life on the line for the love of country. When these servicemembers return home, we owe them a deep debt of gratitude and so much more. In Congress, we work to make sure we are paying back that debt whenever possible.
Iowa Congressman David Young today announced dates and locations for the 2018 Iowa Veterans Care Fairs.
While there are numerous organizations and government agencies in Iowa whose goal is to assist veterans, sometimes accessing all of these resources can be overwhelming for veterans and their families.
An elected official’s most important duty is listening to and speaking with the folks who he or she represents. Not only do I travel to and visit every one of the 16 counties in the Third District every month, I also hold a Coffee with My Congressman public forum and have multiple open office hours sessions with my bosses – the folks of Iowa’s Third District - every year in each county throughout the district. So far this month, I've already held 14 town hall forums throughout the district - from Milo in Warren County to Riverton in Fremont County.
