On Saturday, September 10, Assemblyman Tom McKevitt (17th District), in conjunction with Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (15th District) and Assemblyman David McDonough (19th District), hosted the fourth annual Veterans Brunch. Held at the Hicksville VFW, veterans from across the three assembly districts were invited to be honored for their years of service. Assemblyman McKevitt hosted the event, and was proud of the large number of guests the Veterans Brunch attracted. “It is an honor for me to be hosting this event with Assemblymen Montesano and McDonough in order to give back to our Long Island veterans,” said McKevitt. “These veterans fought to protect the freedoms of this nation and this event is one small way we can honor their sacrifice, including the ultimate sacrifice paid by their fallen comrades. It is a privilege to know these men and women, and on behalf of my Assembly colleagues, we thank them for their service.”
