Ra Invites Veterans to Attend Free BBQ

July 25, 2017
Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) invites veterans to attend his free annual Veterans BBQ, which will once again be held at the Franklin Square VFW. Veterans are invited to bring one guest and are asked to make reservations with Ra’s district office prior to the event, at (516) 535-4095.

“It is important for us to give back to those who defended our country,” said Ra. “This is why every year I host a free BBQ for veterans, not only to thank them for their service, but to provide them with crucial information on the benefits and services they are entitled to. Representatives from the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency and the Northport VA will be present to provide information on services available to veterans. Additionally, the Nassau County Clerk’s Office will be enrolling veterans in their Veterans Recognition Program which enables veterans to record a copy of their DD214 with the Nassau County Clerk’s Office and receive discounts from participating businesses. Those wishing to enroll should bring their discharge papers or DD214 to the event.”
