Congressman Scott Tipton

Representing the 3rd District of Colorado

Military and Veterans

Americans unite around our respect for the men and women in uniform who keep us safe and free. Our respect and gratitude do not end when these heroes conclude their military service. These men and women have protected our families and our way of life, and we owe them a lifetime of gratitude. I am committed to making sure that the security of our homeland and the welfare of our troops and veterans remain a top priority in Washington. Ensuring that the United States has the ability to build and maintain a strong national defense is one of Congress’ most important duties. To achieve that, we must be clear-eyed about the threats America faces and about what is required to overcome those challenges and defeat our enemies. Congress must also work together to ensure that our military members, both current and former, receive the recognition they deserve and the benefits they have earned.
