From the Desk of Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel - May 21, 2009

Honor Vets on Memorial Day

Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel,  a member of the Assembly’s Committee on Veterans Affairs, is asking constituents to pause for a moment during their Memorial Day celebrations to remember the many men and women who have lost their lives during conflicts both past and present.  

“On Memorial Day we take pause to remember and honor the soldiers who gave their lives for the cause of freedom – the true heroes of this country,” said Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel.

Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel has worked hard to pass laws that will improve the lives of veterans who have returned home from battle.  This is the best way for New York State to honor its soldiers.
