  • Sanders Holds Veterans Town Hall and Resource Fair

    Sen. Bernie Sanders held a Veterans Town Hall and Resource Fair on May 19 at Norwich University. Roughly 150 Vermonters attended the event which highlighted national, statewide and local resources for Vermont veterans and their families. “I wanted to hold today’s veterans town meeting because now, more than ever, veterans deserve to know what’s going on in Washington. I also want to make sure all veterans and their families know what services and benefits they are entitled to,” Sanders said. “As a longtime member and former chair of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I am honored to be able to work on behalf of Vermont’s 45,000 veterans and their families who have done so much in service to our country.”
