Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued this statement on the passing of M/Sgt. Peter Miesburger, USAF Ret:
“Through his many years in the U.S. Air Force and his tireless advocacy for his fellow veterans, Pete’s life was marked by exceptional service to his country.
“Pete was a tremendous champion for ensuring that Northern Maine veterans have access to care close to home, and he was instrumental in the progress we made on Community-Based Outpatient Clinics and the ARCH program. Pete frequently travelled to Washington, D.C., to brief me on issues affecting Maine veterans, and I will greatly miss seeing him to discuss our shared priority of ensuring that veterans receive the benefits and resources they have earned.
“As one of the founding fathers of the Northern Maine Veterans’ Cemetery, it is fitting that Pete will be laid to rest there with the veterans he devoted his life to serving. My heart goes out to Jean, his wife of 50 years, and their children.”
