Scholarships for Purple Heart Veterans? Home Loans for Gold Star Families? Not On Rosendale’s Watch.
 
Helena, MT – As Maryland Matt Rosendale continues his election year pandering on veterans issues, his long record of opposition to veterans’ benefits remains an albatross on his efforts to rewrite history. As a state legislator, Matt Rosendale voted against creating a program that created a scholarship for Montana Purple Heart recipients to help them find a path to pursue higher education.

It wasn’t the only time Rosendale attempted to block well-deserved benefits for veterans and their families. Maryland Matt voted against creating a program that has helped hundreds of veterans and gold star families buy homes. The loan program was endorsed by the VFW, American Legion, and National Guard, but Maryland Matt still couldn’t bring himself to do right by Montana’s veterans. Thankfully, despite Rosendale’s objections, the bill passed, was signed into law by Governor Bullock, and has since provided hundreds of loans to Montana veterans. 

Kathleen Williams, serving in the Monta3na House at the time, voted for both bills. Kathleen is the daughter of a World War II veteran and wife of a Vietnam-era  veteran, and she will never stop fighting to ensure that our brave servicemembers get the care and benefits they deserve.

“Maryland Matt Rosendale’s shameless election year pandering isn’t fooling anyone — Montana veterans know where he’s been,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “When it comes to our veterans, Rosendale is outrageously out of touch, and no amount of posturing will change that.”
