Veterans of New York Founder Colin R. O'Leary was the keynote speaker at St. John's University in NYC for the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Dinner back on November 7th. The fundraising dinner is hosted annually by the Kappa Sigma fraternity at St. John's University. The fraternity hosts the event annually as a way to raise money for Veterans charities and non-profits.
O'Leary spoke to a crowd of about 200 at the event, which included students, faculty, staff, Veterans, and active duty military. His speech honored Veterans for their service and he also shared some professional advice that he developed in the military and civilian world.
The event included dinner, raffles for gift baskets, and a 50/50 raffel. It was a big success overall. Thousands of dollars were raised at the event to support Veterans organizations through Kappa Sigma's on-going Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign.
The NYC Veterans Day Parade was held on Monday, November 11th, 2019. It was the 100th year anniversary, or the centennial, for the parade in New York City. The weather was perfect and it was a great turnout. Checkout some photos from the parade below, which were shared by Veterans and supporters.
