$200 million rebuild of the Soldier's Home in Chelsea
We enacted the BRAVE Act [providing additional services and supports to veterans].
We broke ground on a $200 million rebuild of the Soldier's Home in Chelsea, proving once again that no state is more committed to delivering for its veterans than Massachusetts.

$4,000 tax credit for hiring unemployed veterans
Too many of our returning heroes struggle to find good jobs. Jesse Brown and Matt Mastroianni the founders of Heidrea Communications of Plymouth and Bellingham are with us tonight. Heidrea constructs, maintains and repairs cell towers, a booming
business in today's wireless world.
After serving our country as United States Marines they both joined a large firm in the cell tower space. In 2007, they left the comfort of a big company to start their own.
The beginning was rocky, but today they employ 70 people. Almost half of whom are veterans like them. And their future is bright.
Like many small businesses, they want to hire and employ our veterans.
We should make it easier for them to get it done. So we'll be proposing a $4,000 tax credit for businesses hiring and retaining an unemployed veteran.
