Veterans from all over the south shore met Tuesday to hear what Senator Brown had to say about issues like employment for soldiers returning from active duty and a delay in answers to disability claims.
Brown, a member of the Army National Guard himself, took questions and concerns from veterans in the audience – like that of Hingham Veterans Services Director Keith Jermyn who says one of the issues that is being overlooked is transportation to treatments for disabled vets.
Jermyn was one of more than 50 people in the room. Senator Brown offered his staff’s support in helping to find volunteer van drivers for disabled vets needing transportation.
Brown, on Tuesday, spoke at a campaign luncheon at an American Legion post in Quincy and discussed several pieces of legislation he’s introduced during his one term in the Senate.
Brown is locked in a re-election bid, with heavy pressure from democrat Elizabeth Warren, who herself, will likely have a primary challenge from Immigration Attorney Marissa De Franco.
