Congressman Neal Dunn

Representing the 2nd District of Florida

Veterans

Over the last several years we have heard horror stories across the country about veterans being denied the care they need and deserve.

It’s clear that under the current system, our veterans aren’t getting the care they have earned. As a veteran of the U.S. Army, ensuring our men and women in uniform get the support they need is one of my top priorities in Congress. I was honored to be appointed the Veterans Affairs Committee

Our veterans have fought to secure our freedoms; they shouldn’t have to continue to fight the bureaucrats in Washington when they get back.
