Congressman Pete King Speaks at Suffolk County American Legion Breakfast

Today I had the privilege of speaking in Brentwood at the American Legion's Annual Suffolk County Legislative Breakfast. American Legion members from all over Suffolk attended including County Commander Bill Farley of Lindenhurst and Past County Commander Tom Wagner of Bayport. I thanked the Legion members for their dedicated service not only in the military but also in the Legion after their active duty service was concluded. I stressed my consistent support for veterans throughout my years in Congress including leading the fight to bring the G.I. Bill of Rights into the 21st Century and increasing programs to treat veterans and their family members for PTSD. As far as I am concerned, America can never fully repay the debt we owe to our veterans!

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!
