Remembering our Vets and First Responders

On this Veterans Day, once again, we honor the men and women who have served our wonderful country. As the son of a proud WWII Army veteran, my father Marvin and my uncle Norman taught me how important it is to recognize and thank those who protect our nation and whose sacrifices and service make us safe. We must never take our security for granted.

Equally as important is recognizing those who protect us every day at home — our first responders. We thank our firefighters, police officers, EMT’s, Army National Guard, health care workers, and many other responders for their daily selfless acts. Especially during this time of a global pandemic, we owe a deep debt of gratitude to them for selflessly putting their lives on the line. They put the welfare and safety of others before themselves. That is what makes their careers so noble.

We have so much to be grateful for on this Veterans Day. Please pass this note along to someone you know who deserves our appreciation.

Respectfully,
Mike Barasch

    Thank you for recognizing all of these Americans and, their contributions and sacrifices.

    I served our country at 18 in 1970 tour, Vietnam, Danang and Hoi An. Besides using my weapon of choice, the M – 16 I was a Code Talker so the enemy would not know what I was talking about.

    Thank you and all your employees who served and who’s family members served .

    I look at the faces of your father and uncle and you see such enthusiasm and joy. It is easy to see why they were the greatest generation. Thanks to them!

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation


    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.

    Register For Compensation

Please help spread the word about the strict two-year deadline to register a claim

Many people have tried to complete the VCF application on their own, only to learn that it requires answers to hundreds of questions and many documents to download. It would be our pleasure to help you complete the process in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please call us for a free consultation.
