Wolfeboro, NH – 1st Congressional District Candidate Jeb Bradley today received the 2008 Citizen of the Year award from the New Hampshire Chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Citing his tireless efforts on behalf of veterans and service members currently deployed, the VFW honored Bradley with this annual recognition.
“Jeb Bradley has also stood beside the men and women who have worn the uniform,” said State VFW Commander John Calo. “When the VA Medical Center in Manchester threatened to close its emergency room, Jeb fought to keep it open. When men and women serving in harm’s way needed night vision equipment to protect themselves against road side bombs, Jeb Bradley secured them the funding for it. Whether it is in support of those serving today, or in years past, Jeb Bradley has always stood by the side of those that wear the uniform and today we stand beside him.”
“Jeb Bradley has really earned this award. He has always stood behind veterans in action as well as deed. While others simply talk the talk, Jeb Bradley walks the walk. I thank him for all he has done and will continue to do,” said Paul Chevalier, Past Commander, NH VFW.
“It is an incredibly humbling thing to receive this award from a group of people that I respect so dearly. Our veterans have served us honorably,” said Jeb Bradley. “We can never let our Veterans be the group that falls through the cracks. I will do whatever it takes to make sure our veterans receive the medical care and benefits they need and have earned.”
