Bow man sworned in as New Hampshire's Army civilian aide
Burdett, who served as a U.S. naval aviator for more than 20 years before he retired in 1993, was named to the post in August with support from the state’s congressional delegation.
Burdett was praised by Gov. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Kelly Ayotte for his work with veterans, veterans’ organizations and his leadership in helping civilians better understand the state’s 120,000 veterans.
Shaheen said Burdett combines two enduring New Hampshire traditions: volunteerism and military service.
Hassan called Burdett the perfect fit for the position, first established in 1922.
As the civilian aide, Burdett provides feedback to Army leaders on public attitudes, issues and concerns and provides support to New Hampshire soldiers and their families.
He was commissioned in 1972 and designated a naval aviator in 1973.
Burdett was deployed in the Persian Gulf from 1990 to 1991 and retired as a U.S. naval aviator in 1993.
Burdett is the assistant vice president of the Manchester Branch of Merrill Lynch.
