Crowder Again Saluted as Veterans’ Ally

Denver -- Senator Larry Crowder (R – Alamosa) continues to win accolades as a top ally of military veterans at Colorado's Statehouse, having recently been named "Distinguished Legislator" at the United Veterans' Committee (UVC) 44th annual awards banquet. It's the latest in a series of awards Crowder has garnered for his leadership on veterans issues.

UVC is a non-profit coalition of 50 chartered and federally recognized veterans service organizations and affiliates established in 1972.

UVC President Frank McCurdy said that “Senator Crowder is seen as the ‘go to’ legislator whenever there is legislation to benefit veterans.” On top of being an Army veteran himself, Senator Crowder also served as the Veterans Service Officer of Rio Grande County.

"It is a privilege to receive this award from the UVC,” said Sen. Crowder. “As a Veteran, I know what it’s like to try to jump through these hoops the VA has set up and I just want to do my part to make that process easier for all our veterans here in Colorado."

Senator Crowder's unique experience of serving both as a member of the armed forces and then in a Veterans service office gives him a holistic understanding of the needs of Veterans, and experience navigating the bureaucracy that too often impedes access to the services and care they deserve.
