Now in her third term as a Nassau County Legislator, Delia DeRiggi-Whitton is relatively well informed regarding services for veterans in our county.
Unfortunately, one of our best agencies assisting veterans was not mentioned in her article. Is she aware that Nassau County boasts one of the best agencies in New York State, and I would bet, in the entire country? I’m speaking of the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency located in the rear section of Nassau University Medical Center, 2201 Hempstead Turnpike- Building Q, East Meadow, NY 11554.
They have counselors for every veteran’s needs, and a food pantry for veterans who have a need for assistance with food supplies. I hope our legislator will add this information to her directory. The list is woefully incomplete without it.
