Annette enjoyed a laugh with local veterans after speaking at the Veterans Day ceremony last November. As chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military & Veterans Affairs, she works hard to ensure that our veterans receive the benefits they’ve rightly earned, and that the Michigan National Guard has the resources it needs to fulfill its mission at home and abroad.

As the wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law of veterans who served during World War II, the Gulf War, and the Iraq War, she knows the difficulties veterans and their families face and is committed to meeting their needs.

  • She voted for a budget that increased funding for Military and Veterans Affairs by over $1 million for health, support, and benefit programs.
  • She introduced and won unanimous bipartisan support for a resolution declaring “Women Veterans Recognition Day.”
