Franklin Square, NY - August 15, 2017 - Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) spent time with local veterans last weekend at his annual Heroes Night Out BBQ at the Franklin Square VFW. Over 100 veterans attended the event, enjoying burgers and hot dogs with all the fixings as they learned from Ra more about opportunities available to them. Representatives from Nassau County Town Clerk Maureen O’Connell’s office, the Northport VA and the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency were present.
“Getting to spend the day with those who have risked their lives for our country was truly an honor,” said Ra. “I am so happy I had the opportunity to give back to veterans by providing them with information which can help improve their quality of life. These people have given so much to our country in so many ways that anything I can do to help them is an honor in itself. I want to especially thank VFW Post 2718 for hosting this event again, Franklin Square Boy Scout Troop 93 for providing our color guard and The Coral House for partnering with us in providing a classic summer BBQ for the veterans and their guests. I look forward to hosting this event for many years to come as a way to support local veterans and help them gain access to the benefits they are entitled to.”
