U.S. Congressman Scott DesJarlais

Representing the 4th District of Tennessee


Veterans are American heroes. Just as these brave men and women have fought for our country, we must fight for them here at home.

I voted to hire more doctors and nurses, speed appeals, and improve accountability for negligent employees. My office helps many Tennessee vets claim benefits and care.
