Shaheen invites local veteran to Washington

(Continued)

As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Shaheen has been a strong advocate for veterans. She helped ensure that health-care benefits would be fully exempt from cuts to federal spending and has pushed Congress to pass the Veterans Jobs Corps Act and the VOW to Hire Heroes Act. She has also co-sponsored legislation that would require the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide for a full-service VA hospital for veterans in New Hampshire.
