Klippert appointed to veterans’ affairs committee

'I will work hard to provide a strong voice on this committee for our veterans'


Rep. Brad Klippert has been appointed to serve on the Joint Committee on Veterans' and Military Affairs. The committee comprised members from both the House and Senate.

Klippert, a helicopter pilot who was recently promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel, has served more than 21 years in the Army National Guard and Reserve.

“Our national security, as well as the safety and security of our citizens, are extremely important to me. I'm very appreciative of our veterans who stood in defense of our freedom. It's important we give them the support they need as they return home from their valued service to the nation,” said Klippert, R-Kennewick.

The joint committee was created in 2001 and reviews veterans' issues and programs, matters affecting active military forces, the National Guard and Reserves, examines current laws, and makes policy recommendations to the Legislature. The committee also studies the structure and administration of the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs and the military department.

“It is an honor to be appointed to this committee,” added Klippert. “I will work hard to provide a strong voice on this committee for our veterans and their families to ensure their issues get the full attention of the Legislature.”

Klippert, a Benton County deputy sheriff, is serving his first term in the House, representing the 8th Legislative District.
