  • Representative Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25) has been selected to receive the Disabled American Veterans Congressional Leadership Award in recognition of her support and efforts to strengthen veterans’ programs and enact new legislation.
    Buerkle was chosen to receive the DAV Congressional Leadership Award for her commitment to veterans. In her role as chairwoman, Buerkle has provided oversight of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) on such topics as veterans’ suicide prevention, mental health care and prosthetics programs.
    Buerkle has also put the spotlight on veterans’ mental health issues. Earlier this summer Buerkle hosted a member briefing on veteran students’ mental health with David Rudd, PhD, dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Science at the University of Utah.
