Honoring an Oregon Veteran's Service - Long Overdue

In Congress, I spend a lot of time talking about and working on the issues affecting the nation and Oregon.  But an important part of my job is helping my constituents if they have a problem.  My staff and I have helped cut through red tape, win back over $1.5 million in Social Security payments, denied veterans benefits delayed IRS refunds.

But every so often, there is one that really gets to you.  Like the story of David Blunt.  Able Seaman Blunt is a hero, plain and simple.  For too long, he hadn’t received the recognition he deserved.  I was humbled to be able to help put that right.  Here is a video of David Blunt being awarded the medal he so richly deserved.

Thank you for your service, sir.
