Congressman Bruce Poliquin

Representing the 2nd District of Maine

Veterans

Honoring the service and sacrifice of members in the military and their families is one the greatest and proudest responsibilities for Members of Congress. One of Congressman Poliquin’s top priorities is to continue to support the brave men and women in uniform during active duty and once they return to civilian life.

When service members return to civilian life, it is imperative that they receive excellent healthcare, help with their benefits and any other issues that may arise. They have served our Country with honor and we must honor and fulfill our promises to them. Congressman Poliquin’s staff in Maine and Washington, D.C., is here to help with all constituents’ requests – click the link here.
