Senator Malcolm Smith Sponsors Veteran's Breakfast
State Senator Malcolm Smith recently hosted a veteran's breakfast, along with Wellcare, at Thomasina's in Queens. "It is important to honor our veterans every day of the year, not just on Veteran's Day," said the State Senator.
"I am honored to be sponsoring this event for the Queens veterans, and I want to thank everyone who participated in the breakfast today. Especially with Memorial Day approaching, it is important to remember the countless men and women who have made sacrifices for the good of our country," said Senator Smith.
The Senator noted that all of the local veteran's organizations were invited to the breakfast and that Wellcare, a healthcare provider who co-sponsored the event, handed out free health care information to participants at the breakfast.
"I hope that the veterans who attended today's breakfast found it both enjoyable and informative. I want to thank Wellcare for co-sponsoring this event with me and for sharing free information for participants, as well as Thomasina's for providing us with a wonderful breakfast. This year's gathering was a great success and I hope to make it a tradition," said Senator Smith.
