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!
