Klein Pays Tribute to Fallen Soldiers at Memorial Day Services Across the Bronx & Westchester
State Senator Jeff Klein, together with hundreds of active service members, veterans, families and children, paid tribute to our brave U.S. servicemen and women this past Memorial Day. Senator Klein attended commemorative parades across the Bronx and Westchester and laid wreaths for fallen soldiers.
“Memorial Day is a time to reflect on the extraordinary sacrifices made by our brave service men and women whose courageous acts contributed to our freedom. Each year, we mark Memorial Day by paying tribute to our fallen heroes, veterans, and active military members. We, however, must always remember our service men and women each and every day and ensuring employment is just one way. I am extremely proud of the Veterans Tax Credit legislation that I sponsored, which helps provide jobs for our veterans returning from overseas by offering incentives to businesses,” said Senator Klein.
This Memorial Day weekend, Senator Klein attended the Silver Beach Memorial Day Ceremony; the Edgewater Park Volunteer Hose Company No. 1 Memorial Day Parade, the Bicentennial Veterans Memorial Park Ceremony in Throggs Neck; the Morris Park Annual Memorial Day Service; Town of Pelham Memorial Day Parade; and the City Island Memorial Day Parade.
