Chip in $20 to support Sherrod Brown's Campaign

Senators Sherrod Brown, Tammy Duckworth Join Ohio Veterans In Columbus For “Veterans And Servicemembers For Sherrod” Coalition Event

COLUMBUS, OH  – Yesterday, Senator Sherrod Brown and Combat Veterans and Senator Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran and Purple Heart recipient, joined Ohio veterans State Representative and U.S. Army JAG Corps Reserve Colonel Adam Miller and retired Airman Melissa Rodriguez in Columbus for a Veterans and Servicemembers for Sherrod coalition event.

“Politics is about whose side you’re on. Governing is about whose side you’re on. I’ll always stand on the side of Ohio’s veterans, servicemembers and their families and always fight to make sure they have the resources, benefits and recognition they deserve,” said Sherrod.

“All of you in this room know just how much Sherrod has delivered for Ohio’s military community and those who have served our nation. He’s had our back, and now we need to have his,” said Senator Duckworth.

“Unlike so many politicians, Sherrod Brown doesn’t just talk about supporting Ohio veterans and servicemembers, he takes meaningful action. We know the stakes of Sherrod’s election, we need to send him back to the U.S. Senate to continue his work to deliver for Ohio veterans, servicemembers and their families,” said Rep. Miller.

“While so many politicians spend their time talking, veterans across the state have stories of meeting Sherrod and watching him listen. That’s what makes Sherrod so unique, he puts the needs of Ohioans first and is always putting our ideas into practice. Sherrod has always been there for us, every step of the way. And that’s why I’m proud to support Sherrod’s reelection to the U.S. Senate,” said “Veterans And Servicemembers For Sherrod” co-chair Melissa Rodriguez.

Sherrod has led efforts to secure healthcare benefits for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits during their service, keep veterans in their homes, and honor the service of Ohio veterans, servicemembers, and their families.

Sherrod has always fought for Ohio veterans, servicemembers, and military families to make sure they get the benefits and honor they deserve: 

  • Sherrod wrote and passed the bipartisan PACT Act to secure healthcare and benefits for veterans exposed to toxins and burn pits during their service. Sherrod has hosted roundtables across the state to ensure veterans are aware of the benefits available to them through the PACT Act.
  • Sherrod passed the bipartisan Keeping Military Families Together Act through the Senate which extends the authority for servicemembers’ spouses and children to be buried in national cemeteries.
  • Sherrod passed the bipartisan Mark Our Place Act through the Senate to memorialize all Medal of Honor recipients and preserve their legacies.
  • Sherrod introduced the Veterans Housing Stability Act to prevent servicemembers and veterans who used home loans during the COVID-19 pandemic from losing their homes. Sherrod also successfully pushed the VA to launch a program helping servicemembers and veterans keep their homes.
  • Sherrod introduced the Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act to increase compensation for veterans with service-related disabilities and military survivors.
  • Sherrod is pushing the VA to modernize veterans’ healthcare records and better protect the personal information contained in those records.
  • Sherrod introduced the bipartisan Veterans Affairs Centennial and Heritage Act to place the National VA History Center on the Dayton VA Medical Center campus.
  • Sherrod stood up to big banks and urged them to take the burden off of servicemembers by following through on their promise to cap interest rates for servicemembers.
  • Sherrod introduced the bipartisan Critical Health Access Resource and Grant Extensions Act to extend VA programs that prevent veteran homelessness, support caregivers, and address staffing shortages at State Veterans Homes.
