Members of Congress love to talk about how important it is to care for military veterans. But in the view of Frank Larkin, there has been a lot of talk but little action. And he wants to change that.

Larkin, who has been Senate sergeant-at-arms for the past three years, will depart his post at the end of March. His decision to leave stems from the death of his son, an emotionally taxing experience for him and his family and one that gave Larkin a new mission in life.

In a wide-ranging interview in his Capitol office, Larkin also discussed the criticism levied at his office over press access in the Senate, security threats facing the building, funding challenges for the Capitol Police and possible changes to the security process for entry into the complex.

A Navy SEAL and 10-year combat veteran, Larkin’s son took his own life in April after struggling with a brain injury as a result of explosions. Now, Larkin plans to honor his son’s legacy by dedicating his time to working on projects to help wounded warriors, specifically traumatic brain research related to a pattern of injury related to military blast exposure that his son suffered from.
