Congressman Andy Harris

Representing the First District of Maryland


As a veteran, I fully understand the commitment and sacrifice each serviceman and servicewoman makes for our great nation.  Our veterans are heroes and deserve our respect and gratitude.  However, for many veterans coming home, it is a difficult and painful transition – especially dealing with the VA bureaucracy.

We must keep our promise to those who answered our nation’s call by ensuring they have access to the highest quality health care. The VA must be held accountable for failures in the Veterans Health Administration, which must be reformed to improve wait times and quality of care. Regardless of when they served, I believe that every soldier, sailor, Marine, and airman always receive our utmost attention.  We need to keep our promise to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as our POWs and MIAs.
