Thank you to Veteran’s Agent Bob Arsenault for the kind words. It’s a pleasure to work with our local veteran advocates to help pass sweeping legislation like the VALOR Act II to help our state’s veterans and their families. This new law, passed this session with bipartisan support, builds on the state’s already strong commitment to veterans and their families. Now military personnel attending public or private colleges can’t be penalized financially or academically by virtue of being called up for service and private employers can offer hiring preferences to veterans to help them transition back to the private sector. The law reduces and waives many professional licensing fees for veterans, adds more safeguards to protect against dubious charitable fundraising practices that often prey on veterans and their families and increases the penalties for disturbing a military funeral. I’ll be offering an update on this new law and taking questions at a special edition of “Coffee with Josh” to be held next week with the Pembroke American Legion. It’s Tuesday, September 16 from 6-7:30pm at the Grange Hall on Rt. 27. Pizza and refreshments are on me. Please spread the word!
