We deliver a BBQ, live music, needed supplies and a few hours of friendship Every June we host a BBQ at the Northport VA, it’s the same weekend as Father’s Day, this is a fun day with good food and live music for all the Veterans that reside in the VA, we always also invite all of our supporters to join us in spending the afternoon with these Veterans and join us for the day. We don’t charge fees, and everyone is invited for free, but we do need funds to make this event successful. We are asking for sponsors of the event, here is the link http://www.bootsonthegroundny.com/product/7th-annual-run-to-the-va-event-sponsor/ or you can just make a general donation at http://www.BootsontheGroundNY.com/donate  to help with costs to this event. the funds collected for this event go towards purchasing the food (burgers/buns/soda/water/etc) and to purchase 200 t-shirts that we provide the Veterans that attend the gathering. each year we create a t-shirt, and sponsors logo and mentions are on the back. We also bring supplies to the hospitalized Veterans. This is a great day for family and friends, as we need the help of the community, as many of the Veterans are in wheelchairs and can use the help being assisted to and from the grounds as well as help getting their food, but most of all, we all get to make new friends that day, and the Veterans look forward to this. Hope to see you on Saturday June 17th. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/399023410447925/ Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...

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...
