Vet2Vet celebrates local veterans at Aug. 18 picnic


Marine veterans Adam Roche, left, and AJ Dye at Vet2Vet are leading the Veterans Recognition Picnic on Aug. 18.

By Anna Barton

In our often hurried and thankless society, some of those who deserve our deepest gratitude are left unappreciated. Mental Health of America (MHA) of Dutchess County’s program, Vet2Vet, is working its hardest to make sure this does not happen to our local veterans.

On Aug. 18 from noon until 4 p.m., Vet2Vet is honoring local veterans by hosting a Veterans Recognition Picnic at VFW Post 170 in Poughkeepsie. The picnic is open to all veterans, but special recognition will be given to those who served in World War II and Vietnam.
