Veterans and Military Families for Progress (www.vmfp.org) enthusiastically and proudly endorses Annie Kuster in the upcoming 2nd New Hampshire Congressional District election. Founded in 2005, VMFP is dedicated to ensuring that the rights and needs of veterans, active-duty service members (including National Guard and Reservists), and their families are understood by the American public, endorsed by our elected officials, and protected by legislation, regulation, and public policy initiatives.
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Veterans and Military Families for Progress,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “As the daughter of a World War II veteran, ensuring our veterans receive the healthcare and support they’ve earned is incredibly important to me. We’ve made progress in addressing challenges faced by veterans within the Department of Veterans Affairs but there is much more to be done. I’m committed to continuing my efforts to increase access to healthcare for veterans and improve oversight at the VA as a member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee.”
Veterans and Military Families for Progress said,
“Annie Kuster is a strong supporter of our nation’s veterans and active armed forces. Annie Kuster’s strong commitment to the issues that are critical to veterans, those serving now, and their families is unsurpassed. Her public support for priority funding of the Veterans Administration and her declared determination to provide for the establishment of a national veterans and military family policy give veterans and their families hope that at long last a Congresswoman will vote in such a way as to keep faith with those who have served and sacrificed.
“Annie Kuster’s father was a World War II veteran. Thus her strong support of legislation for improving the treatment of veterans with traumatic brain injuries and PTSD, stems from a deep personal understanding of the need for providing and guaranteeing full health coverage for National Guard and Reserve personnel and demonstrates that she is a candidate who has the character and courage and personal family experience to do what is right for those in service to our country. We feel that veterans, active duty, military families, and in fact, all people of New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District will be well-served with Annie Kuster as their representative by ensuring that America remains strong in national defense and in fighting terrorism.”
