Kennedy wants new legislation that will help military families live more comfortably and make ends meet, after making great sacrifices for state and nation.
Kennedy’s bills will provide tuition assistance for children whose parents served in armed forces, help vets and their families cover property tax bills, boost veterans’ access civil-service jobs.
Kennedy: Entire families bear the burden of sacrifice when a son or daughter, husband or wife, father or mother is called to duty to protect our freedom and security. Our state must do more to support military families.
