SENATOR TO HOST VETERANS ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Posted February 7th, 2013

Senator David Carlucci will host his Veterans Advisory Committee meeting next Thursday (Valentine’s Day), February 14 from 10 a.m. – noon. The event will be held at the VFW Ramapo Post 2973, 16 Ramapo Road, Suffern. Among the topics that will be discussed includes Senator Carlucci’s “Jobs for Heroes” legislation in the Senate. The bill, which attracts bipartisan support, gives tax credits to businesses that hire veterans who have served in the military post-9/11. Other issues will include mental health and wellness for returning veterans, including dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. The event will also showcase the Senator’s annual “Valentines for Veterans” celebration, which gives Rockland County elementary school students the chance to create Valentine’s Day cards for veterans across the Hudson Valley. For more information, please contact Senator Carlucci’s office at 845-623-3627.
