To PGR Members,
Thank you for your presence on July 8th for the renaming of the Oakdale-Bohemia Bridge for my son, Matt. Many of you stood for my son and my family 10 years ago at his wake and funeral, so it was a very special honor for me to have you in attendance at the bridge renaming also. The PGR has always been an organization that defines honor and respect in a way that makes all of us proud to be associated. When I look back over the years at all the home comings, funerals and Veteran events that the PGR has played a special role in, I feel tremendous respect and admiration for all the members that take their valuable time to serve the veteran community. You guys are the best!
