Veteran’s Affairs

Despite the courageous sacrifices of our nation’s veterans, our institutions continue to fall short of sufficiently addressing the needs and wellbeing of America’s heroes. 

As a former Navy SEAL, Representative Crane understands the challenges veterans face as they return to civilian life and the unacceptable failures in proper benefits and care. Instead of enacting unconstitutional vaccine mandates, engaging in ‘forever wars’, and implementing woke training for our troops, Representative Crane believes we must prioritize world class care, resolve the homelessness crisis, and reward veterans for their selfless service to our great nation.
