Congressman Anthony Brindisi delivered Valentine’s Day cards to local veterans at Sitrin Health Care in New Hartford today.

The cards were collected as part of his Valentines for Vets program.

Brindisi launched Valentines for Vets to show appreciation for Upstate New York veterans.

“I was honored to spend time with Upstate New York veterans today and deliver valentines to thank them for their service and sacrifice,” said Brindisi. “Our veterans put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms, and it is important that we honor them all year around. This is just one small way to say thank you.”

Brindisi's Utica and Binghamton offices collected more than 200 cards from individuals and schools across New York's 22nd congressional district.
