Congressman to Honor Veterans with Cards During Holiday
Congressman Anthony Brindisi (NY-22) announced his Valentines for Veterans program, encouraging families in New York’s 22nd Congressional District to show appreciation for veterans with homemade Valentine’s Day cards.
Rome, N.Y. — Rome veteran Hugh Aikens was recently honored with his long-awaited and well-earned military service medals, presented by U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi at the New York State School for the Deaf (NYSSD).
Aikens, now almost 94, was 18 years old when he started performing his military service and winning awards for his valiant efforts.
U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi is encouraging area families to participate in his Valentines for Veterans program.
As part of the annual program, Brindisi, D-Utica, is seeking submissions of homemade Valentine’s Day cards for veterans. The deadline to submit is Feb. 12.
“Our veterans gave everything to protect our country, and we owe them our utmost respect and gratitude,” said Brindisi. “Honoring them this Valentine’s Day is just one small way for us to say thank you and let them know we will always remember their sacrifices.”
Holding a framed display with a couple handfuls of military medals neatly arranged inside, 94-year-old Rome resident Hugh Aikens said he couldn’t fully express his gratitude for receiving them.
