Congressman Greg Walden

Representing the 2nd District of Oregon

Supporting our Military and Veterans

We owe it to the men and women who have worn our country’s uniform – and those who wear it today – to give them the support they need. That’s why I work hard to help cut through red tape at agencies like the VA, and we’ve already helped over 6,000 veterans and their families get answers and results.

I supported landmark reforms to the VA to make sure VA employees are held accountable for their actions, and can be removed or demoted for negligence, misconduct, or poor performance. The House also unanimously passed my plan to make sure veterans can receive more timely access to care at the VA.

To boost military readiness, I supported giving additional resources to our troops so they have the tools they need to carry out their missions safely and effectively. I also voted to give our men and women in uniform the largest pay raise they’ve seen in eight years – they deserve nothing less for all they do to defend our freedoms.
