Dear Friend:

As we share the joys of the season with friends and family, let’s not overlook those neighbors who are most in need.  Having served in the U.S. Marine Corps, I am reminded of those brave men and women in our Armed Forces who have spent the holidays away from their homes and families.  Many soldiers have returned home to Long Island and are suffering the hardships of this difficult economy.  They have my utmost respect and deserve our support and encouragement, especially during the holiday season.
