Concord Patch: Kuster Honors Granite State Veterans at NH Veterans Cemetery
Today, U.S. Rep. Ann McLane Kuster, NH-02, helped honor veterans, active duty servicemen and women, and their families by speaking at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery.
Kuster joined Adjutant General William Reddel, Gov. Maggie Hassan, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, and U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, among others, to commemorate the occasion.
“On Veterans’ Day, we gather to commemorate the bravery, patriotism, and sacrifice of our veterans. We are so proud of your commitment to our state and country, and we are grateful for your service,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “The dedication shown by our veterans, active duty servicemen and women, National Guard and reserves, their families, and those who help support our military, represents what makes this country truly great.”
Kuster, a member of the U.S. House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, regularly meets with Granite State veterans to learn more about how Congress can best support their needs. In August, Kuster met with local veterans in Keene to hear about their experiences at the local VA medical centers, and met with veterans, VA leaders, and local advocates during tours of the Keene Community-Based Outpatient Clinic and Keene Vet Center. Earlier that month, she held a Veterans Jobs and Resource Fair at Harbor Homes in Nashua to help connect local veterans with employment opportunities and community resources.
