Shusterman honors local veterans with annual appreciation breakfast and personal visits

PAOLI, Nov. 15 – State Rep. Melissa Shusterman, D-Chester/Montgomery, honored servicemembers this Veterans Day by hosting a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast at the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. Following the breakfast, Shusterman toured the 157th Legislative District, stopping at five area nursing homes. Stops included Daylesford Crossing, Echo Lake, Brandywine Senior Living, Parkhouse and Phoenix Center, where Shusterman personally thanked resident veterans for their service to the nation.

“The liberties and freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this great nation are a direct result of the selfless service of our veterans,” Shusterman said. “It was a privilege to be able to host my annual Veterans Day breakfast, but I wanted to do more to show my appreciation during this holiday. Knowing full well that not all local veterans were able to attend my breakfast due to mobility reasons or prior obligations, I wanted to ensure everyone who served receives a proper thank you.”

Shusterman added, “While showing appreciation for our servicemembers, both past and present, on Veterans Day is vital, we should be thanking these heroes at every opportunity that presents itself.”
