Maggie for NH Announces 300 Members of “Veterans for Maggie”

Tuesday, October 25, 2022

Maggie for NH today announced 300 members of “Veterans for Maggie” from across New Hampshire, underscoring Senator Maggie Hassan’s commitment to ensuring that veterans, service members, and their families receive the support that they need and have earned.

In August, Senator Hassan held an event at Sweeney Post #2 in Manchester with New Hampshire veterans and members of the Senator’s Veterans for Maggie Leadership Council, where she outlined her bipartisan work to support veterans as a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

“I am honored to receive the support of 300 veterans across New Hampshire, all of whom have sacrificed bravely in defense of our freedoms and have made our state and country stronger – both before and after their service,” Senator Hassan said. “While we can never fully repay the debt that we owe to veterans, we all have an obligation to try. As an American and the daughter of a WWII veteran, I take that obligation seriously, and it’s why I am committed to working across the aisle to honor and support all those who serve.”

“The Senator has a clear record of delivering tangible results for New Hampshire’s veterans, and as a result, it was a no-brainer to support her for re-election. Senator Hassan is a true leader on veterans issues, and we need to ensure that she can return to the Senate to continue this vital work,” said Mike Lopez, Army veteran.  

“Senator Hassan has been a powerful advocate for veterans like me – from expanding access to health care to improving programs that help our transition to civilian life. I’m proud to support the Senator’s reelection because I know she’ll continue to stand by the veterans community,” said Gloria Timmons, Army veteran.

As a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Senator Hassan passed into law critical bipartisan legislation to improve benefits for service members and veterans, strengthen VA services, and expand veterans’ access to health care, including mental health care. Most recently, she worked to pass into law her bipartisan legislation to help veterans more easily transition into civilian life. Senator Hassan also worked with Republicans to pass comprehensive legislation, which is now law, to expand VA health care to more veterans exposed to toxic substances during their service.

The Senator has consistently supported pay raises for US troops and fought for passage of the “Forever GI Bill” to expand educational opportunities for veterans. And she successfully pushed the Biden administration to ensure that more service members can use the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. Additionally, Senator Hassan led the successful bipartisan push to return the POW/MIA Flag atop of the White House – a priority that Granite State veterans raised with her.
