A special message from New York State Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb and the Assembly Minority Conference.


Each year, our President signs a proclamation honoring the families of veterans declaring November Military Family Appreciation Month. The family of a service member goes through a great deal of hardship while their loved one is on deployment. Imagine one parent being responsible for all the bills, caring for the children, taking care of the home and doing all the things necessary to maintain a stable home environment so the service member can concentrate on their mission. On top of all that, the parent at home worries about their loved one and children have one less parent at milestone events.

On Veterans Day, it is important that we take time to recognize our veterans for all they do for us, their sacrifices and the burdens of serving overseas they carry with them when they come home. Throughout the month, take time to appreciate all the hardships our military families endure.
