Today, our nation is demanding much of our military. Despite the many hardships that confront military families, our servicemembers and reservists have embraced their duty and are serving their country with pride and courage.

If you are a resident from the 2nd Congressional District of Iowa serving in the military and have tried unsuccessfully to resolve a problem through your chain of command, I would be happy to see if there is anything my office can do to help. While we welcome calls from concerned relatives, the Privacy Act dictates that to ask for detailed information, we must work directly with the servicemember.

I hope the resources below will be helpful to you in your search for information.

If you would like us to initiate an inquiry on your behalf, please print out my Authorization Form and fax or mail it to my office.
