Recently, the Robert H. Jackson Center was honored to welcome New York State Senator Cathy Young at a luncheon followed by an interview by Greg Peterson, co-founder of the Center. The event highlighted Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent appointment of Senator Young to the office of New York State Finance Chair, a position of great value to the citizens of Western New York and Chautauqua County. Korean War veteran and local resident, Peter Carlo, invited all veterans who attended the interview to attend a flag presentation to Senator Young on behalf of all veterans. Senator Young, in turn, gave the flag to the Robert H. Jackson Center to fly at their location. The flag had the honor to be flown over the nation’s capital in Washington DC.
