She introduced H.R. 475, Health Care Fairness for Military Families Act of 2021, and while it was not in the NDAA, she made the case to the House Rules Committee for continued support along with her co-sponsor Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) and what is now 138 cosponsors.

The award is named for Col. Marix, who founded MOAA in 1929. Past recipients include Senators Lindsey Graham, Jim Webb and the late Senator John McCain.
