Military and Veteran Resources

For Zoe, honoring the service by members of our armed forces, the sacrifices our veterans have made, and ensuring our country's commitment to them is a personal matter of the utmost importance.  Below is a list of resources and organizations that provide help and support. 

If you are experiencing difficulties or problems with a federal agency and need Zoe's assistance on your behalf, please contact her San Jose office at 408-271-8700 to speak with her staff or submit a request online
