Veterans Day is a time to honor and reflect on the sacrifices Maine veterans have made in service to our country. It also serves as a reminder that we can and should do more to support our veterans as they transition back into our communities.
Our efforts to honor and support our veterans must not be limited to one day a year, or words of praise alone. I believe we must turn our words into action, which is why I have worked alongside my colleagues to pass laws that make a difference in the lives of these brave men and women. This year, we passed laws to reduce veteran homelessness and promote veteran-friendly workplaces. Next year, we hope to pick up where we left off by expanding property tax relief for veterans.
