Washington, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) voted for several pieces of legislation to support New Hampshire veterans and improve access to services and care. These bills make necessary reforms to the United States Code to ensure Armed Forces members are reimbursed for educational expenses, improve insurance eligibility access, streamline veteran health services, and modernize medical waste treatment systems.


“The brave men and women of our Armed Forces make tremendous sacrifices in defense of our nation and our freedoms,” said Rep. Kuster. “As the daughter of a World War II veteran and prisoner of war, this is personal. I recognize the lengths these heroes go to keep us safe and our country secure. It is our responsibility to honor our veterans’ service and support them in their return to civilian life. These bills will help modernize and streamline services and programs to provide our veterans with the resources they need to thrive.”
