Times Union's a.m. article by Terry Brown in AROUND THE REGION's "Duty Calls", was nice to see this morning. Our Veteran's Community is always looking for passing along the news! We're fortunate to have reporters who care for the vet. Albany Times Union, The Altamont Enterprise, Schenectady's Daily Gazette, SpotlightNews & the Troy Record.

Reporters, Dennis Y, Tim O'B, Molly, John C...TV stations; especially a friend & videographer, Chris Boehlke. I don't have all the names of the news photographers & reporters but believe me, I appreciate what you do for the vet. Please, keep it going! Special thanks to Michael F. Joyce, always there for me.

NOTE:pleaserememberme.org or pleaserememberme.us will continue to "Give Back" to the Community by having this Distinguished Service Award.

Also, sponsoring someone for Boys State via our Jos E Zaloga Post No 1520 AND we're researching the "Scholarship Fund" idea & Essay Contest for students in HS & less than 9th grade.

Thank You for your support. God Bless America and God Bless the Veteran.

Peace - Gene       

P.S. Check out our 2 websites: PleaseRememberMe.ORG    &   PleaseRememberMe.US     

God Bless America and Remember the Vet!

Prior to our April 2015 Tri-County Council Vietnam Era Veterans Meeting; Capital Bank CEO, Anders Tomsom and WTEN 10 Ann Madeo, presented our President, Joseph Pollicino with the Capital Heroes Award for Nov 2015. Joe's been in Florida and now's the time for the presentation; along with a $500 check for TCCVEV. He deserved this award; with the many years of service to veterans, veteran organizations and his belief in assisting the vet.

Joe a Purple Heart Recipient, who served in Vietnam; same time as I did, 1967 to 1968. Congrats,

TCCVEV President President, Joseph Pollicino, Capital Bank CEO, Anders Tomsom

                             and WTEN 10 Ann Madeo and Chairman Thomas Regan
