The USO 5k is coming soon.  I am once again asking for support for Team Stars for Cars.  I am going to walk in honor of the late Michael A. Arciola, Private First Class, United States Army and his family. Michael died in Iraq at age 20. The 5k is scheduled for Sunday, October 12, 2014.  Please come to NYC Pier 84.

Also, I met with County Executive Ed Day of Rockland County yesterday.  He, a Blue Star Father himself, had a first-person connection to my cause.  He pledged to help me with the acknowledgement of the “Blue Star” and “Gold Star” Military Families during the school day in Rockland County. Thank you, County Executive Day! If you look on the Rockland County website, you will soon see a picture of our visit together.

Please remember that Sunday, September 28th is Gold Star Mother’s Day.  This is a difficult day for these mothers whose lives were changed forever after the loss of their child or children.

My next blog will be about what I did on Patriot Day.

Your Neighbor,

Jake Gallin
