UTICA, N.Y. – Ahead of Veterans Day next week, Congressman Anthony Brindisi held a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast at 72 Tavern in the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica on Monday, Nov. 4.

Brindisi, who is on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, gathered the local veterans to honor their service, and discuss the support available to them through his office and local organizations.

He also wanted to hear from the veterans, and get feedback on where service gaps may be.

Brindisi says some laws that are designed to help veterans are still being reviewed by legislative committees.

"A lot of it has to do with some of the legislation that's pending in the VA committee right now, stuff that we're trying to push through the House of Representatives and get signed into law. And some of it's just constituent-related issues, an issue they might be having with the VA and we can intervene and try to assist them," said Brindisi.

Brinidisi said veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the present-day global war on terrorism attended the event, which was held from 8:30 – 10:15 a.m.
