We must always remem- ber that our freedoms have been fought for and defended by cur- rent and former members of the Armed Forces– many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. Earlier this year, I honored World War II veteran and Clarence resident, Harold J. Enstice, as a New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame inductee. Enstice, as part of Op- eration Dragoon with the 142nd Infantry Regiment, invaded Southern France and liberated more than 20 cities and towns throughout the country, playing a major role in defeating the Nazi army and ultimately end- ing the war in Europe. Harold’s company ran into the toughest kind of resis- tance during the war, but his platoon stuck it out and survived under his leadership. Harold is a member of America’s Greatest Generation, and it was such an honor to recognize his service to our country. During this year’s legislative session, I worked to demonstrate my unwavering support for our heroic service men and women by helping to secure funding for the following important veterans’ initiatives: • $3.1 million for the Joseph P. Dwyer Veteran Peer-to- Peer Program; • $1 million in new funding for veteran-to-veteran pro- grams run by Veterans Ser- vice Organizations; • $500,000 for the NYS De- fenders Association Veterans Defense Program; • $200,000 for Warrior Sa- lute; • $100,000 for the Veterans Justice Project; • $50,000 for the Vietnam Veterans of America New York State Council; • $200,000 for Hel- mets-to-Hardhats; • $25,000 for the Veterans Miracle Center; and • $120,000 for Veterans of Foreign Wars NYS Chapter Field Service Operations. The Senate also took action on a number of measures to support veterans, including my legislation to help veterans afford a home. The legislation, Bill S5158, assists service-re- lated disabled veterans in af- fording a home by giving those with a VA disability rating of 40 percent or higher a preference in applications to the state’s Af- fordable Home Ownership De- velopment Program. Our disabled veterans have given their health to de- fend our freedoms, and we owe them a debt of gratitude. While it can never truly be repaid, this legislation helps disabled veter- ans sustain a good quality of life by making it more affordable to own a home. Bill S5540 directs the Commissioner of General Ser- vices to place a POW/MIA chair and plaque in the State Capitol to honor the more than 91,000 United States prisoners of war and those still missing in action. The Senate and Assembly ap- proved the measure, and I voted in favor of the legislation. It is expected to be sent to the Gov- ernor for his consideration by the end of this year. As your State Senator, I will continue to work to sup- port our veterans. Our coura- geous veterans deserve the best, and all of these actions are one small way to repay our heroes and express our gratitude. 1 Church St., LeRoy, NY 14482 585.768.2201 www. l pg r aph i c s . ne t
