FRA Names Senator Kelly Ayotte (N.H.) as 2015 Pinnacle Recipient

PRESS RELEASE

PRESS RELEASE

Washington, D.C., April 16, 2015—The Fleet Reserve Association (FRA) presented its prestigious Pinnacle Award to New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte to honor her outstanding leadership in preserving and enhancing the quality of life for military personnel, retirees, veterans and their families. Ayotte, New Hampshire’s junior senator, was selected to receive the association’s highest honor for her stand against the reduction in cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) of retired pay for military retirees under the age of 62 and for her opposition to TRICARE fee increases. She also strongly supports legislation to exclude the Department of Defense (DoD) budget from sequestration cuts. FRA additionally recognized Ayotte for her advocacy on behalf of all military veterans, including sponsorship of bills such as the Veterans Health Equity Act and the Remembering America’s Forgotten Veterans Cemetery Act. The award was presented in a Capitol Hill ceremony hosted by FRA.
