Veterans

Ryan Zinke is committed to keeping the promises made to those who have defended our nation.  He is a strong advocate for reforming the Veterans Administration in order to provide better care to our nation’s heroes.  One of the first pieces of legislation Ryan introduced in the House aimed to improve local healthcare opportunities for veterans living in rural areas. It gained bipartisan support in both chambers and the VA adopted the reforms.

As a 23-year Navy SEAL veteran, Ryan had the honor of training thousands of men and women in the armed services. He knows first-hand that veterans are an asset to any organization, bringing unrivaled leadership and character.  Our veterans are highly skilled and are prepared to take on the jobs of today and tomorrow. Ryan remains dedicated to strengthening programs to help our troops find employment when they return home.
