Annie knows firsthand the sacrifices made by our service members and their families. Annie’s father and father-in-law both served in the Invasion of Normandy 70 years ago. Today, Annie serves on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, where she works to ensure our government serves veterans as well as they served us. That’s why she helped introduce a package of bills to eliminate the backlog in claims for VA benefits, including her own bill, which passed the House with bipartisan support. She also supports legislation to assist veterans with the transition back to the civilian workforce, and she successfully passed her amendment to improve contracting opportunities for veteran-owned small businesses. Annie successfully fought to improve access to health care services for veterans in New Hampshire, leading to the expansion of a clinic in Littleton. She is working to expand access to care throughout the Second District so veterans can get the services they need and deserve. She is also leading efforts to secure affordable housing units for homeless veterans in Plymouth and Keene.
