It looks like fall is here and winter can't be too far behind.
Just wanted to extend a special thanks to all Hudson Valley 10-13 members who joined local law enforcement agencies (both active and retired) at the Brinks Memorial Service held on Tuesday, October 20th. We can never forget Sgt. Edward O'Grady, Jr., Police Officer Waverly "Chipper" Brown and Brinks Guard Peter Page. Their murders committed in our own community by domestic terrorists is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by these individuals and their families.
There are two important events coming up in November:
** The first is Veterans Day, November 11 to (originally Armistice Day, which ended World War I, on November 11, 1918). Most veteran organizations (VFW/American Legion) have memorial services commemorating the day. Please join the organization of your choice to honor our servicemen and women.
** The second is Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26th. To our members and their families, the Board of Officers would like to offer best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.
In conclusion, our next scheduled meeting will be held on Thursday, November 19th, 7:30 PM, at the American Legion Post #1600, in Pomona. Our guest speaker will be Keith Owen, representative of NYPD PBA Health & Welfare Fund. Come join us for this informative session as well as the chance to catch-up with some old friends.
We look forward to seeing you.
A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM TONY PERRONE
September 25, 2015
Dear Board Members, Presidents, Members and Families ,
At this time, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for all of your concern and good wishes. I especially would like to thank my Executive Board, Frank, Rich and Marie for keeping things running smoothly.
I received many phone calls and prayers from many members and their families during a very difficult time. I was un-able to talk, but my family received the calls, cards and prayers, and passed them all on to me. I am very grateful and honored to have so many friends.
I truly believe that your prayers, calls and well-wishes expedited my recovery. We take things for granted, especially our health. A little abscess nearly killed me, I am on the mend, though still tired and weak. But, at least, I'm home!
Once again, I'm honored and very touched by your concern about me. I will try to return the calls I received as soon as I'm feeling better, my voice is still a little hoarse.
I'm so thankful to have so many friends, and I think God for our 10-13!
