This past Tuesday evening, I was proud to accept — on behalf of all New Rochelle residents — the gift of a new monument honoring veterans of the War in Vietnam.

This coverage from News 12 captures the spirit of the event.

I thank the United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association of New Rochelle for conceiving of this tribute and doing the hard work, including fundraising, which made it possible.

You can view the monument in front of City Hall, just to the right of the main walkway from North Avenue.

May we never forget the profound sacrifice of those who served our nation.
