Supporting Service Members and Veterans

Supporting Service Members and Veterans

Our men and women in uniform have always stepped up when our country needed them most, and Senator Booker is steadfast in his commitment to standing for up for those presently serving in our nation's armed services, for our veterans, and for the families of those who are serving or who have served.

Senator Booker is working hard to address the needs of New Jersey's veterans and their families, including the systemic challenges that have left veterans in New Jersey and throughout the country without access to quality health care. In 2014, Senator Booker worked with a Republican co-sponsor to pass legislation that further supports veterans with traumatic brain injuries.  After hearing from New Jerseyans who were required to travel to out-of-state VA facilities, Senator Booker introduced an amendment to give veterans more healthcare options in their communities. Portions of this amendment were included in the Veterans' Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 that passed in the Senate in June 2014.

Recognizing that veterans in New Jersey and across the country possess extraordinary potential to succeed in entrepreneurial and leadership roles, Senator Booker introduced the Strengthening Technical Assistance, Resources, and Training to Unleash the Potential of Veterans Act (STARTUP-Vets) Act, which provides technical support for veterans seeking to begin small businesses.

Senator Booker will continue to fight for our nation's service members and work tirelessly to ensure that they get the support they deserve when they return home.

In the Senator's Newark and Camden offices, New Jersey active service members, veterans and their families can get help with housing, health care and other issues. If you or a loved one would like assistance from Senator Booker's office with a casework issue, click here
