Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) today released the following statement and shared mental health resources for veterans who may be struggling as the situation in Afghanistan unfolds.

“Veterans in Iowa and across the country, particularly those who served in Afghanistan, need our support right now. I can’t imagine the emotional and mental health toll that the horrific situation in Afghanistan is having on them. If you know someone who has served, reach out. Check on them today and continue to do so in the coming days. Thank you to all who have served and God bless our troops.”Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
