Some members of the New Hampshire Democratic Party are forming a caucus for military veterans and their families.
About fifty people have expressed interest in joining, says Amelia Keane. She's a Democratic representative from Nashua and a combat medic in the Army Reserves.
Keane is also a member of the caucus, and she says its goal is to advocate for legislation that would improve the lives of veterans and their family members. She says right now the caucus is just getting started.
"We want to ensure that this veterans caucus has strong infrastructure, sustainability, and most of all, you know, work politically to improve the lives of veterans and their families."
The group is holding a social kickoff in Londonderry on December 7th, the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
