Press Release

Patchogue, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) just issued a statement in response to a Newsday article today attacking the military service of United States Navy combat veteran and Naval Reserve Commander Tom Croci:

Congressman Zeldin said, "Absolutely disgusting Newsday hit job today on U.S. Navy combat veteran Tom Croci. Embarrassed for whoever was involved in the decision to attack a military veteran for deploying to a war zone to defend Newsday's rights to print this garbage. They should learn a lesson from the mistreatment of our nation's veterans who returned home from Vietnam and were spat on. They should just retract their whole story and issue a correction that says ‘Thank you Tom for your service to our country’.”
