Sinema Appoints New Members to Veterans Advisory Council

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema appointed 10 new members to her Veterans Advisory Council. Sinema formed the Veterans Advisory Council to directly incorporate veteran feedback and recommendations regarding policies, programs, and resources that support the needs of Arizona veterans. 

“We’re excited to welcome ten new members to our Veterans Advisory Council,” said Sinema. “Our members understand the unique challenges facing Arizona veterans and how we can work together to best serve their needs. Together, we’ve created and planned 10 events and have helped thousands of veterans and their family members get medical care, disability benefits, and resources. I look forward to continuing our work together.”
