I've joined a bipartisan group of House Committee on Veterans' Affairs members to demand that the Attorney General begin a perjury investigation of VA construction officials involved in the Denver VA Hospital cost overruns. The Denver VA hospital has been one of the worst cases of mismanagement in the history of the VA. Our veterans who depend on these facilities deserve truthful answers about the costs and delays that affect VA facilities. https://veterans.house.gov/news/press-releases/chairman-miller-acting-ranking-member-takano-hvac-members-ask-doj-investigate-va
The VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System invites you to the 2 year Anniversary and Open House of the PFC Floyd K. Lindstrom Clinic in Colorado Springs on Saturday, September 24th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Ensuring that our veterans have access to convenient, comprehensive healthcare has always been a priority of mine. It was an honor to partner with so many Southern Colorado veterans to help bring a new Community Based Outpatient Clinic to our region for our veterans. I was honored to pass legislation designating the new clinic as the "PFC Floyd K. Lindstrom Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic." PFC Lindstrom was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions during WWII and is one of the Fifth Congressional District’s – and the nation’s – greatest heroes. He is buried in Colorado Springs at the Evergreen Cemetery and I can think of no one more deserving of this honor. PFC Lindstrom, who served in the Second World War, received the Medal of Honor posthumously for his “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity” in singlehandedly defeating a German counterattack on November 11, 1943 on a hill near Mignano, Italy. His citation notes that Private First Class Lindstrom “demonstrated aggressive spirit and complete fearlessness in the face of almost certain death.” It will be a free family-friendly event with food and refreshments, children’s crafts and activities, and free door prizes. Spouses and children are encouraged to attend. The day’s activities will include a “Welcome Home” Event for recent-conflict Veterans seeking information on VA programs and benefits. Free flu shots will be available for Veterans currently enrolled in the VA health care system. And information and contacts from throughout the area will also be present representing many Community providers, Veteran Service Organizations, and local Colleges.
Last night, I voted to promote national security and prevent future ransom payments that endanger American citizens. The House passed H.R. 5931, the No More Cash Ransoms to Iran bill. This piece of legislation: --Calls out the Obama Administration for paying ransom for Americans held in by Iran --Blocks ALL future cash payments to Iran --Creates transparency measures for future financial settlements --Ensures the US dollar will not be used for ransom. For more information about the Iran Ransom Scandal, read the following article from the House Foreign Affairs Committee https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/blog/5-times-obama-admin-insisted-cash-way-pay-iran/
