CVA NH Thank A Vet Summer Event Series Schedule

Concerned Veterans for America (NH Chapter) Announces

2015 “Thank A Vet” Summer Event Series


Franklin’s Mayor Ken Merrifield to Kick Off CVANH “Thank A Vet” Effort

Manchester, NH – Today, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) NH Chapter announced its “Thank A Vet” summer events series, on the heels of its successful 2014 similar events held in Londonderry and Holderness. Last year’s events included program support from State Senator Jeanie Forester, State Representative Al Baldasaro, combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars Amber Barno, National Gold Star Mothers Karen Vaughn and New Hampshire’s own Natalie Healy.

Mayor Ken Merrifield will be on hand to kick off the Thank A Vet summer event series hosted by Concerned Veterans for America NH Chapter. 

“The purpose of CVA’s ‘Thank A Vet’ series is to take pause and give thanks to New Hampshire’s military heroes and their families,” said Roger S. Wilkins, NH State Director for CVA. “Defending freedom and prosperity has a high price and we welcome the chance to give something back to the veterans’ community. While showing our gratitude we plan to propel a discussion around the issues which affect our citizens in uniform every day: a skyrocketing national debt and deficit, failing veterans’ health care and the worrisome state of the strength and security of our nation.”
