Shea-Porter a Consistent, Strong Supporter of Veterans
To the editor:
We are Vietnam veterans and have supported Carol Shea-Porter since her first campaign in 2006.
As the daughter of a World War II veteran and the wife of a Vietnam era veteran, Carol has been a very strong supporter of veterans’ issues.
She supported the Wounded Warrior Assistance Act and authored the Veterans Health Equity Act that resulted in a new mental health facility, a contract for impatient services with Concord Hospital and an outpatient clinic in Conway.
In addition, she voted for the law providing assistance for caregivers of disabled veterans and improved health care services for women veterans.
She introduced legislation, now law, to prevent the government from collecting debt from families of troops dying from combat injuries.
The above list represents a small sample of Carol Shea-Porter’s efforts to help veterans.
Shea-Porter recently received the endorsement of the Veterans and Military Families for Progress.
She has been and consistently is a strong supporter of veterans, active military and their families.
Frank Guinta, not so much.
We strongly support Carol Shea-Porter and recognize her efforts.
