Honoring our veterans


I lost my birth father, Artie, in the Vietnam War, so I know all too well the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.

As a Gold Star Son and member of Congress, I’m on a mission to ensure we take care of those who risk their lives in service to our country—and that we don’t forget about the families they leave behind.

Dean’s record

Dean is a Gold Star Son who understands the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.

In Congress, Dean is a member of the Army Caucus, National Guard and Reserve Component Caucus, and Navy-Marine Corps Caucus.

Dean supported and helped pass the long-overdue PACT Act, a new law that will expand access to health care and benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances, and he authored the Vet Center Support Act to help ensure access to mental health care for veterans and their families.

Dean will continue to support and advocate for measures to improve the VA healthcare system, address veterans’ mental health needs, end veteran homelessness, and enhance benefits.

Let’s create change—together.
