Taking care of our veterans is of utmost importance. Alabama's Fifth Congressional District contributes heavily to America's defense and, hence, has a large veteran population. Congressman Brooks works hard to help our veterans in the same way they have helped fight for America.
Brooks is a member of the House Armed Services Committee, which provides limited oversight of veterans matters.
