Shaheen has shown support for our veterans

To the Editor:

The article by our friend Nancy Iannuzzelli in The Cabinet on July 31, was a grand slam home run. Our senior U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has been a great leader in fighting for our veterans over the years as our governor and going all out to support our veterans and has led this effort as our senator in congress.

Our veterans deserve the best medical care and insurance, as they are first class Americans who have fought and given their lives for America in wars since World War I to the present.

At last the Veteran’s Administration is, I hope, got the message that all the veterans hospitals in America will make sure a veteran does not have to wait weeks or months to see a doctor.

In 2001 I was with Jeanne Shaheen and her husband, Bill, as we and then-U.S. Sen. John Kerry visited veterans hospitals thoughout New Hampshire.

I will return to New Hampshire this fall to work with Veterans for Shaheen, to re-elect our U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
