Local Veterans Help Veterans

Vets are helping the Vets.

Saturday the VETS4VETS Benefit was held at Binghamton’s Post 1645. The all-day event included a chicken barbecue and a police-escorted American Legion riders parade. There were baskets, raffles and other prizes given throughout the day.

Hounds Helping Heroes held demonstrations showing how dogs can help veterans upon their return. Featured keynote speaker Captain Kevin O’Reilly, an Afghanistan combat veteran, spoke of his experiences and some of the issues faced by returning veterans.

All proceeds from today’s event will help to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project which helps thousands of wounded veterans, and their families, as they return home.
