WASHINGTON, D.C. - Iowa Congressman David Young traveled to Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Iraq to thank U.S. servicemembers for their service and sacrifice ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Congressman Young joined a delegation led by Iowa Senator Joni Ernst, which also included Michigan Senator Gary Peters, Pennsylvania Congressman Keith Rothfus, and Virigina Congressman Rob Wittman.
On this Veterans Day, we need to thank each and every individual who donned the uniform and stepped up and responded to the call of duty by serving the United States and her people. It is because of their selflessness, bravery and courage we have the privilege of living in this great country.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Iowa Congressman David Young continued his commitment to upholding promises to our veterans and his work to improve the Veterans Crisis Line today, and voted to pass legislation to review the effectiveness of the Veterans Crisis Line.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions of both Secretary Perdue and Congressman Young. The forum portion of the event will be moderated by WHO Radio’s Doug Cooper.

My staff and I know Iowans call, visit and email one of my four Constituent Services Offices when they have hit a roadblock with Social Security, the IRS or renewing a passport. Understandably, most have become frustrated with the red tape and cumbersome bureaucratic nature of federal government agencies and programs.
As I travel to each of the 16 counties of Iowa's Third Congressional District each and every month, I meet with Iowans to hear what is most important to them.
This week's :60 Second Survey asks you to tell me what one issue you think the United States Congress should be focusing on - if you were only able to choose just one.
If you’re wired into social media, the internet, 24-hour cable news or talk radio, you would think the only things coming out of Washington, D.C. this year are President Trump; Russia; controversy; investigations; protests; anger; and gridlock.
It’s been difficult to hear or see the reality over the blaring and flashing “BREAKING NEWS” alerts which fill the airwaves continuously each broadcast hour.
The reality is the most common sounds coming from the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017 are the words “the bill is passed”.
