Those who proudly serve in our nation’s armed forces, and their families, make sacrifices on a daily basis to help keep us all safe.  I am happy to be of service to members of the uniformed services, military retirees, and their family members who are experiencing difficulties with the U.S. Department of Defense and/or its military branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and the U.S. Merchant Marines), TRICARE, or the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS).

If you are unable to secure the help you need from the following resources, I am happy to try to help you. However, I will need your written permission (or, if you are contacting my office on behalf of a relative who is in the armed services regarding that service member’s problem, I will need the written permission of the service member who is experiencing the difficulties) to help with most military-related matters. A Privacy Act Release form will need to be completed and sent with a detailed explanation of your request for assistance to:
