Senator Moore applauds new resource for veterans
June 1, 2012 ... In the week following Memorial Day, Sen. Richard T. Moore, D-Uxbridge, announced that Massachusetts has officially launched a new veterans’ web portal, MassVetsAdvisor.org, continuing to lead the nation in veterans’ services. This resource, a collaboration between the Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services, the Massachusetts Broadband Institute, the Red Sox Foundation, and the Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program, is an easy to use website that helps Massachusetts veterans and their families find the benefits and programs for which they are eligible.
"In this season when Americans honor all who have sacrificed for our freedom, I want to commend Secretary of Veterans Affairs Coleman Nee, his Department, and partners for developing this outstanding new resource to help connect Massachusetts veterans with the services and assistance that they need and deserve," Sen. Moore stated.
By combining information on state and federal benefits into one tailored online search, veterans and their families now have access to one-stop shopping for all of their needs. Access to benefits that once took hours to research, resulting in dozens of phone calls and meetings are now just one click away on www.MassVetsAdvisor.org.
Sen. Moore, who has a long record of supporting local veterans and was a co-sponsor of the recently enacted "Valor Act" which expands opportunities for veterans, was so impressed by the new website that he has created a direct link from his official web site www.senatormoore.com to the MassVetsAdvisor.org web site. "I want to be sure that any veteran or veteran's family member is aware of this important resource and can easily gain access," Sen. Moore explained.
