Veterans' Resource Page

The New York State Assembly is dedicated to providing support to the brave citizens who have honorably served our country. I am grateful for the contributions and sacrifices that our Veterans have made and hope that this website can be a valuable resource. Included within, are several informational links, contacts and prevalent initiatives readily available for your use. I encourage all Veterans and their families to visit this page to stay updated on programs and legislation that may be of benefit to you.
