Since arriving in Congress, Rep. Peters has been a constant advocate for servicemembers, veterans, and the families that support them. One of his first pieces of legislation, H.R. 1714 – the Shelter Our Servicemembers (SOS) Act, is aimed at reducing the population of elderly homeless veterans. He also brought together military commanders, non-profit organizations, and veterans’ community leaders to start the Military Transition Support Project (MTSP), which will create a central portal for new veterans to access information on benefits, housing, and employment.
