Independence Day gives all of us an opportunity to remember, serve, and honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice by serving this nation. On July 4, Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray will launch the Patrick-Murray administration's 4th Annual Massachusetts Awareness for Support and Services (MASS) Veterans Tour. Lieutenant Governor Murray will join U.S. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus for festivities aboard the USS WASP, currently docked in the Boston Harbor.  After the Fourth of July and War of 1812 Bicentennial commemoration events throughout the day, Lieutenant Governor Murray will continue the nine- day tour in local communities across Massachusetts.

The 4th Annual MASS Veterans Tour is a tremendous opportunity for the administration to promote services offered by municipal, state and federal governments as well as the private and non-profit organizations that are resources for veterans and their families.  Among the range of services to highlight, Lieutenant Governor Murray will promote new initiatives launched within the last year, including the work of the Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force to protect the jobs and mission at the Commonwealth’s six military bases.

I am very proud to join Lt. Governor Murray this Independence Day for the kick-off of the Mass Veterans Tour, and the many events to follow. Massachusetts provides the most comprehensive and innovative benefits and services for veterans and their families, and the continued support of the Patrick-Murray administration ensures the Commonwealth will remain a national leader. This tour brings attention to the issues facing our returning veterans while highlighting the extensive programs and services available to assist our veterans and their families.
