Remembering Our Fallen

Feb 10, 17 Remembering Our Fallen

Posted by in Featured Events

“Remembering Our Fallen” is a photographic war memorial created to remember our country’s military Fallen who have died in The War on Terror.  Because 9/11/2001 was such a defining moment for so many Americans, this memorial includes our country’s Fallen since that tragic day in our nation’s history.    Unlike most war memorials made of brick and mortar, this one includes both military and personal photos of our Fallen.  It is designed to travel to offer more people the opportunity to remember our Fallen while being reminded of the tremendous cost of our freedom. Its legacy will be that these men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken, while hopefully, helping to lessen the grief of their families. The greatest fear of their families left behind is that their Fallen loved ones will be forgotten. “Remembering Our Fallen” Will be on display at the VAC on Saturday February 18th and Sunday February 19th from 11AM till 4 pm each day. (hours are subject to change to extend evening hours). The VAC (Veterans Activity Center) is located at 2184 Pond Road, Ronkonkoma NY. 631-615-2200. Boots on the Ground NY also provides needed supplies to disadvantaged and hospitalized Veterans, so please think about dropping off items for the food pantry or items for hospital stays (such as socks, sweatpants/shirts, t-shirts, shower shoes, etc.) We are also actively collecting items to ship to our Troops overseas. Categorized collection bins will in the entry room at the VAC this weekend “Man, does not die until he is forgotten.” We thank you for your Support Boots on the Ground NY “Leaving No Veteran Behind”  click here for Facebook event page Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...

Its All About the Troops on January 29th

Jan 17, 17 Its All About the Troops on January 29th

Posted by in Featured Events

            On Sunday January 29th, me and my organization “Boots on the Ground NY” are hosting another Huge Pack Out to benefit the troops. It’s at the Emporium in Patchogue, doors open at 11:30 AM. We have a long day of live music with some amazing talent on stage. The cover is only a suggested donation of $10. It’s an all ages event and there’s even a free food buffet at 2pm.   What we’re asking though is that people also bring items that can be shipped to the Troops overseas in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Kuwait, Turkey, Korea, Africa (fun places aint they). We those places don’t have CVS or 7/11, so all the luxury items we have, they don’t, and by luxury, I mean, coffee, slim jims, snack, new socks, nail clippers, dvd’s, hats, cereal (and the list goes on)   I’ve been doing this for 9 years, it’s an amazing day, to be part of something that will benefit Our Soldiers, Marines, Airmen & Sailors, your gonnna make those Troops smile. Last year we collected over 78,000 pounds to ship. Not only are we asking you to bring items, but at the event you will also be part of packing the boxes, and prepping them to be shipped. Every person that attends is part of this process from gathering, sorting, packing, labeling, addressing, and loading the trailer which gets dropped off at the post office that night, and those boxes are in the Troops hands in as little as less than a week later. And that $10-dollar cover, goes towards shipping the boxes (each box costs us about $15 bucks to ship overseas).   No one gets paid for this event, I’ve always been a volunteer, my team volunteers, the bands (all 7 of them) all volunteer, the DJ volunteers, the Emporium donates the space, the sound system and the food.   We will also be hosting a special tribute memorial “Remembering Our Fallen” that...
