Bass For Congress - Congressman Charlie Bass Releases Veterans Coalition

Concord, NH – Congressman Charlie Bass (R-NH) released today a list of more than 100 veterans from each county in New Hampshire’s Second District that have joined his campaign.  Bass continues to be committed to supporting and honoring veterans and their families.

Discussing his reasons for supporting Congressman Bass, veteran Paul Chevalier of Hudson said, "Charlie Bass understands the sacrifices all service members make and is a strong supporter of the veteran community. He understands the challenges for veterans when they return home and introduced a bill that creates a military service identification card to make it easier for veterans to show their service and get the care and services they deserve."

Representative Lynn Blakenbeker, a veteran from Concord stated, "Veterans have served our nation and there is nothing more important than honoring the work they do to keep us safe and free. Charlie Bass has been a strong advocate for veterans and he has worked hard to ensure that veterans in New Hampshire receive full service care."

Samir J. Habiby, a decorated Veteran Naval Chaplain from Swanzey, who was wounded while serving with Marine and Navy units in Vietnam, said, “Our country's service men and women sacrifice so much for our safety and freedom. Charlie Bass has worked tirelessly to make sure that those sacrifices are handled with integrity and distinction. He introduced, and successfully got enacted in to law, the Sanctity of Eternal Rest for Veterans Act that makes sure military families can mourn the loss of our nation's heroes with respect and dignity.”

Bass added, “I am honored to have earned the support of so many veterans and military families from across the Second District. Veterans and their loved ones sacrifice so much for our Nation, and I will continue to push Congress to do all it can to ensure that veterans have access to good health care and opportunities when they return to New Hampshire from active service.”
