Congressman Pete King Congratulates Amityville VFW on 70th Anniversary

The Veterans of Foreign War is an outstanding organization consisting entirely of veterans who have served our nation overseas. This month VFW Post 7223 in Amityville celebrated its 70th anniversary and I had the privilege of being the main speaker at the Post's Anniversary Celebration Dinner held at the Unqua Corinthian Yacht Club. The VFW exemplifies the best of America -- patriotism, respect for values and support for our troops. In my speech I emphasized the obligation and necessity of rebuilding our military and providing healthcare, education and job training for returning veterans. At a time when so much coverage and notoriety are given to the likes of Colin Kaepernick who refuses to honor our flag, it is more important than ever that we applaud the brave men and women of the VFW. God Bless America!

In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
