Bills Create Opportunities for Honoring, Remembering and Informing Veterans
The New York State Senate today focused on the important contributions of current and former service men and women by passing three measures to honor and remember their legacies, as well as help them stay informed of the benefits and services available to them. The Senators were joined by a contingent of visitors from the United States Military Academy for what is known as West Point Day at the Capitol.
Memorial Day may be a time where we enjoy quality time with friends and family, but we must never forget that those privileges have been fought for and defended by countless heroes, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice.
Without them and their selfless dedication, none of what we are so lucky to have in America would be possible.
