Representative Richard M. Haggerty (D-Woburn) recently welcomed Reading Veterans’ Services Officer Kevin Bohmiller to the State House for the 2019 legislative luncheon hosted by the Massachusetts Veterans’ Service Officers Association (MVSOA). This annual event honors the state’s Veterans’ Service Officers for their work and advocacy on behalf of our Commonwealth’s veterans and their families.
“It’s important we honor and celebrate our Commonwealth’s VSO’s”, said Rep. Haggerty. “These individuals are on the forefront of advocating for our state’s veterans and their families, and I personally thank them for all they do for our communities.”
“I’d like to thank Representative Haggerty and all other legislators who turned out to show their support for Veteran issues,” said Kevin Bohmiller. “This has been an amazing day! Working together we have made Massachusetts #1 in the nation for services provided to Veterans and their families.”
After the event Rep. Haggerty took Kevin Bohmiller on a tour through the historic State House, visiting the House and Senate Chambers along with the Hall of Flags. The MVSOA luncheon is an annual event that draws bipartisan support each year. Governor Charlie Baker, Senate President Karen Spilka, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo addressed the crowd, along with the many other elected officials and speakers. The organization leads in championing legislative agenda for veterans, supporting those who have served and their loved ones.
