Senator Edward J. Markey Visits the NECHV

The New England Center and Home for Veterans was privileged to receive a visit from Massachusetts Senator Edward J. Markey, who arrived to tour the facilities on November 3, 2017. The Senator spent much of his time at the Center engaged in conversation with Veterans and staff, and learned about the programs and services offered and how these have changed over time to better serve Veterans. Senator Markey pledged to advocate for the NECHV by supporting policies that would enable the Center to continue to support Veterans in need in the most efficient and effective ways.

Thank you, Senator Markey, for your visit, and for being a friend to Veterans and to the NECHV!
