I hope this event brings joy to the faces of veterans who have done so much to protect our freedoms.”

Veterans’ Services Director Adam Roche said, “We are grateful to the Red Hook VFW 7765 for putting on this concert for our local heroes. I know from working with these veterans, that these events mean a lot to them, and they feel the love. We will continue to participate in events that honor our local men and women as we can never thank them enough for all they have done for our nation with their service.”

The concert will give attendees the chance to share experiences and comradery among fellow veterans.
