Congressman Seth Moulton spoke about the VA Healthcare System and the need to support veterans at the BBA’s Veterans Day Reception last week.

The Claflin Center at 16 Beacon Street was buzzing with energy last Thursday. Attorneys mixed and mingled and talked to one another about their shared experiences serving in the military. The event, which was chaired by former Navy Lieutenant John J. Regan (Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP) and retired Marine Corps Colonel William F. Sinnott (Donoghue Barrett & Singal, P.C), also featured a lively speech and Q & A with Congressman Seth Moulton, a former Marine Corps Captain who served four tours in Iraq. In particular, the Congressman discussed his own experience with the VA Healthcare System and his plans to help improve the system for veterans. He encouraged everyone in the room to focus on helping servicemembers transition from active duty.

This event aimed to build a community for servicemembers in the legal field to share common experiences and challenges. If you missed this event but want to get involved, don’t miss the follow up Veterans Meet & Greet Luncheon on January 29th at noon. Click here to learn more.
