Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Good morning. I just have two minutes of brief comments. I just want to tell you how thrilled and delighted I am to be here to represent Philadelphia VA at this presentation, and we at the VA feel so fortunate to be located in a city that has chosen to elevate the visibility of veterans in such an important way. So thank you for all of that.

We feel we already do have a strong relationship with the City, but we think this proclamation will really go a long way to cement that partnership and also to add additional visibility and support to the Wheelchair Games that you've already heard about, which are coming to the City in August 12th to the 18th. Not only is that bringing 650 veterans and thousands of visitors and volunteers, but lots of economic positive impact to our city. So thank you.

So on behalf of the VA, I just want to extend my deepest gratitude to all of you and invite you to join us in celebrating veterans and veteran causes, not just this year but each and every day.

Thank you.
