Our nation’s veterans and wounded warriors have sacrificed in defense of our country. Their dedication and commitment, along with that of their families, has ensured our freedom and should never be taken for granted.
Our veterans deserve the absolute highest quality medical care and benefits for their service. We must ensure that returning military members have access to every benefit they have been promised, As such, Congress should focus on stringent oversight of the VA to ensure veterans are getting the services they need. I will continue to put our veterans first, and fight for legislation that removes barriers for our returning veterans.

Today, Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) joined Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Flint) in calling on Iran to release Amir Hekmati of Flint. Hekmati has been held prisoner by Iran for three and a half years. Moolenaar met with Hekmati’s family today on Capitol Hill.
“Amir Hekmati’s perseverance during three and a half years in captivity is inspiring. Amir’s family misses him dearly and he should be allowed to come home to Michigan and reunite with them. It’s time for the Hekmati family to be with their son and brother again. Iran should release Amir immediately,” said Moolenaar.
