of the Year By the Virginia Military Officers

Association of America

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Barbara

Comstock (R-VA)released the following

statement after she was named

National Legislator of the Year by the Virginia

Military Officers Association of America (MOAA):

“I am honored to receive the National Legislator of the Year Award from the Military Officers Association of America. It has been a top priority of mine to fight for those who have served and defended our nation with honor. One of the first bills I cosponsored this Congress was the WINGMAN Act, legislation that will give congressional district office staff easier, direct access to their constituents’ records in the Veterans Benefit Administration system so our veterans can have their cases resolved in a more expedient manner to get the benefits they deserve. To help preserve the financial stability and security of military spouses, I have cosponsored H.R. 846, the Military Surviving Spouses Equity Act, important legislation that will help ensure the surviving spouses of military members are taken care of in the tragic event their husband or wife does not return from battle. I thank my friend and 10th District constituent Lt. Col. Oliver Carter (USAF-ret) and the members of the MOAA for their service in protecting our nation and look forward to continuing to work with them on even more legislation that will help our veterans and their families who deserve our loyalty.”
