Rep. Pete King Attends FDNY Retiree Breakfast

Press Release – This morning’s heavy rain storms couldn’t keep retired FDNY firefighters from showing up for their monthly breakfast meeting at the Lindencrest Diner in Lindenhurst. Whenever I am not in Washington, I try to get together with these guys and listen to their stories. While most of the morning consists of jokes, insults and barbs, the breakfast always starts on a serious note with President Eddie Fusco reading the names of troops killed in action that month and asking for prayers for sick and deceased brother firefighters. I find it inspiring to see the camaraderie in the room and always appreciate having the opportunity to join with them.
