Bedford (August 23, 2014) - Senator Bob Smith has received a major endorsement from the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition in Washington, DC.
The Coalition consists of 70 veterans organizations and veterans advocacy groups, which represents over 250,000 veterans.
Stating in their letter of endorsement, Chairman John J. Malloy said, “Your experience, leadership, and patriotism are especially needed in the Senate at this particular time in our history when our beloved country is at risk, not only from foreign terrorists, but also from domestic advocates of extreme social and economic ‘reform’ and the weaklings who fail to confront them.”
No stranger to our country’s veterans and their issues, Bob Smith served on the House Veterans Affairs Committee for 6 years and on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee for 12 years. He visited men and women at their duty stations on ships, aircraft, military installations and training facilities all over the world and at home.
Senator Smith is a Vietnam Veteran, having served on active duty with the Navy during the Vietnam War.
“I am extremely honored and pleased to receive this major endorsement from my fellow veterans and I look forward to returning to the U.S. Senate and to continuing the fight on behalf of our veterans and members of our armed forces,” said Senator Smith.
