Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) joined several other Assembly Minority members, including Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb (R,C-Canandaigua), for a meet and greet with soldiers from Fort Drum Military Base in Jefferson County. Hawley currently serves as Ranking Minority Member of the Assembly’s Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
“I am honored to have had the opportunity to meet and talk with military leaders from Fort Drum today,” Hawley said. “The historic 10th Mountain Division guards our northern border and trains members of the military who deploy all over the world. As a former member of the Ohio Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves, I know firsthand the sacrifice and courage members of the military bring to their duties every day, and I will continue to support services for veterans here in Albany.”
