Local VFW Hosts NY Veterans for Lunch

PECKVILLE, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)
     Peckville VFW held a lunch Friday afternoon for New York state veterans.
    

The vets were on their way from New York to Washington D.C.to tour our nation's capital and visit war monuments.
     The trip is at no cost to veterans and for many of them.. it will be their first visit to D.C.
 
"We have some of them in wheelchairs coming. Some of them, obviously, are not mobile and for seeing these monuments for the first time, especially the world war ii monument, that is going to be a fantastic sensation for them and there is no greater honor for them and no greater honor for us to honor these veterans." Said Peter Puhalla, Senior of Peckville

The Knights of Columbus in New York paid for the cost of the trip so the veterans could enjoy these historical sites free of charge.
