Senator Baldwin Recognized By DAV


In recognizing her efforts to combat the opioid epidemic among veterans and service members, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin was honored with the “Outstanding Senate Legislator of the Year” award by Disabled American Veterans (DAV). Senator Baldwin was selected by DAV for her strong leadership and bipartisan efforts in fighting the opioid epidemic while ensuring that ill and injured veterans have personalized care and safe alternatives for pain management. In addition, DAV recognized Senator Baldwin’s work to secure funding for veterans programs and to expand the veterans’ caregiver program.

“Our veterans and their families deserve real solutions to the challenges they face. I am proud to have worked to address these issues through collaborating with my colleagues across the aisle and fostering strong partnerships with organizations like Disabled American Veterans so that we can have a meaningful impact on the lives of those that have served and sacrificed for our country,”said Senator Baldwin. “Thank you DAV for recognizing and honoring these efforts. Together, we will continue to build on our progress by improving the health and saving the lives of veterans in Wisconsin and across our nation.”

“The recipients of this year’s advocacy awards have demonstrated what it means to keep the promise to the men and women who served,” said DAV National Commander Delphine Metcalf-Foster. “They each possess an unmatched dedication to fighting for the best interests of veterans and their families. It is a great honor to present these awards that recognize their critical contributions in the areas of veterans’ health care, benefits, policy and legislation.”
