Vietnam Veterans of America Capital District Chapter 8 in Troy, N.Y., joined Disabled American Veterans Chapter 38 in offering thanks to residents of the Peter M. Guenette Apartments in Lansingburgh on Nov. 21. Veterans were given a gift to use during the holidays at a short ceremony.
“It’s an honor to be here today to support these veterans,” Disabled Veterans Chapter 38 representative Joseph Simonik said. “We all know the sacrifices that veterans make for our country. If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have [the] freedoms that we have today. I’d like to thank all of the veterans that are here at Guenette Veterans housing, and we appreciate their service.”
