Larsen to Host Veterans Roundtables Across the 2nd District

Oct 19, 2012 Issues: Veterans

WASHINGTON—Rep. Rick Larsen, WA-02, will hold five roundtable discussions with veterans over the next two weeks. Veterans are invited to share their thoughts and concerns about veterans’ issues and learn about the services that Larsen’s offices in Bellingham and Everett provide to veterans.

Larsen is a strong supporter of veterans. He supported legislation to strengthen and expand the GI Bill and was a cosponsor of the VOW to Hire Heroes Act, which passed last year and provides tax credits to employers that hire veterans as well as advanced education and training opportunities for veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
