Mishawaka VA Clinic: Congressman Jackie Walorski

WASHINGTON, DC — The veterans clinic in Mishawaka, Indiana may soon be named the Jackie Walorski VA Clinic after the late congresswoman who died in a car accident last week.

The Indiana State Delegation in Washington DC on Friday introduced a bipartisan resolution to name the Mishawaka Department of Veterans Affairs clinic the “Jackie Walorski VA Clinic.”

“Rep. Walorski served on the Veterans Affairs Committee for two terms, a role in which she championed important reforms to improve the quality and accessibility of services for our nation’s military veterans and the lives of veteran voters in the country. country,” read a statement.

Walorski, along with his communications director Emma Thomson and district manager Zach Potts, died in a car crash Wednesday while driving in Indiana’s Second District. She is survived by her husband Dean Swihart.

“I can think of no more fitting tribute than naming a VA facility in Indiana’s 2nd District after my friend Rep. Jackie Walorski,” Rep. Jim Banks said. “Jackie fought tirelessly to serve the veterans in her district and renaming this facility in her honor ensures that Rep. Walorski’s legacy of public service will live on for a long time to come.”
