From the offices of Assemblyman William Colton:
Over 100 guests packed the United Progressive Democratic Club’s “Veterans Appreciation Night” meeting last Wednesday evening. Club President, Mark Treyger, organized the event with Assemblyman William Colton to show the club’s appreciation to local veterans who continue to serve their country in so many ways.
“Their courage and sacrifice will never be forgotten,” insisted Assemblyman Colton, who has aggressively fought for and passed Veterans employment, education, and health care legislation in the NY legislature.
“Our country sends these brave men and women to the most dangerous parts of the world to protect our freedom. Therefore, we in government have a solemn obligation to fight and stand up for our veterans,” Colton added.
“Many veterans put aside festivities during Veterans Day to participate in relief efforts to assist Hurricane Sandy victims,” said president Treyger. “The spirit of service to our country never dies in these heroes,” Treyger continued.
