Assemblyman Angelo J. Morinello (R,C,I-Ref-Niagara Falls) speaking in the assembly chambers about West Point Day.
***Link to video clip below***Today, Assemblyman Angelo J. Morinello (R,C,I-Ref-Niagara Falls) spoke during session to thank cadets from West Point who visited the Capitol for West Point Day. Each year the state Legislature honors the premier military academy in New York and hosts a group of cadets for the day. I was so proud and honored to stand beside the cadets from West Point today, said Morinello. As a ranking minority member of the Veteran Affairs Committee and as an Army Veteran who served as a combat soldier in Vietnam, I understand the challenges and the sacrifices that come with serving your nation. It is only fitting we dedicate a day each year to honor the men and women who attend this prestigious institution and thank them for their hard work, sacrifice and service both today and in the future.
