    Pawling, N.Y. – 06/10/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, has joined the Purple Heart Homes organization to remodel the home of local Vietnam War Veteran Dan Flanigan.

    Today, members of Army Week Association began clearing out Dan Flanigan’s basement and attic to prepare for Saturday’s ribbon cutting ceremony.

    Army Week Association is comprised of retirees, veterans, reservists, military spouses and committed community members who seek to highlight the achievements, sacrifice and service of those who have served in the United States Army. The goal of the organization is to create a multi-generational program that will help establish remembrance of those who have served. Army Week is currently taking place from June 8th through June 12th in New York City.

    “I am very grateful for Chris Page and Army Week Association for working alongside myself and Purple Heart Homes to benefit a true American Hero,” said Senator Greg Ball. “It is heartwarming to see such wonderful organizations join forces for a great cause, and I am proud to be a part of it.”

    “Army Week Association is proud to be working alongside Purple Heart Homes and the Office of Senator Greg Ball to help our underserved veterans in New York. We hope all veterans find as powerful advocates as this great organization and Senator Ball,” said Christopher Page, CEO and Founder of Army Week Association.

    The New York State Senate recently passed a resolution commending Army Week Association for the help they provide for veterans and their families.

    The official construction ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 14th at 10 AM in Pawling, NY.
