West End Korean War Veteran Honored

West End Korean War veteran, Pasquale Coppola, received a few tokens of appreciation on behalf of the US Army's 296th Brigade Support Battalion (formerly known as the 296th Transportation Truck Battalion), in which Mr. Coppola served during the Korean War.

I was honored to present him with a US Flag that was flown over the Pentagon as well as commemorative Battalion coins from the Army. Mr. Coppola currently runs a small shoe repair business called Pat’s Shoe Repair.

Free Heel Scan/Bone Density Screening June 9

On June 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., I will be hosting a FREE Heel Scan/Bone Density Screening at my Pen Argyl Office located at 2 North Robinson Avenue in Pen Argyl. The health screening is in partnership with Easton Hospital.

This screening is an important step in recognizing the warning signs for osteoporosis and is recommended for women over 65, men over 70, or anyone who has broken a bone after age 50. To make an appointment, please call my office at 610-863-1200.

Retire your American Flags with Dignity on Flag Day

Do you have an American Flag ready to be retired? Flag Day is June 14, when we commemorate the adoption of the official United States flag. When a flag becomes worn or tattered, it is to be “retired” with dignity and respect, usually as part of an official flag retirement ceremony.

In honor of our nation’s flag and the principles and freedoms it embodies, I invite you to bring your worn American flags to one of my two district offices:

Tannersville District Office (Monroe) Pen Argyl District Office (Northampton)
2989 Route 611, Suite 103 2 N. Robinson Avenue
Tannersville, PA 18372 Pen Argyl, PA 18072

We will make sure all flags have the proper retirement ceremony with dignity and respect.

Congratulations, Eagle Scouts
