"On behalf of all of our Veterans, men and women, who have and will use the new FDR VA facility/hospital pool I thank Congresswoman Nita Lowey for working to secure funding to make this needed renovation happen.
The pool building on the V.A.campus in the hamlet of Montrose in the Town of Cortlandt has been closed for over a decade. Our Veteran's Committee, other Veteran's groups and many interested residents, along with our town board and I have sent petitions, letters, e-mails and held rallies on the front lawn of the V.A. to renovate the pool, as well as to keep services at this V.A.
Congresswoman Lowey has supported our efforts and has delivered on her promise to secure funds to renovate the indoor pool for physical therapy purposes, as well as, for recreation for our Veterans. We are all grateful for the Congresswoman's efforts".
