Slaughter Statement on Passing of Rochester Veterans Outreach Center Founder Tom
ROCHESTER, NY — Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter (NY-25) released the following statement on the passing of Tom Cray, founder of the Veterans Outreach Center in Rochester and her first district director:
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of Tom Cray. I was honored to know Tom from my earliest days in office and I can think of no one who better exemplified what it means to serve a cause greater than oneself. From serving his nation in Vietnam and serving his community as my first district director to founding the Veterans Outreach Center, Tom committed himself to the betterment of his country and his community. In so doing, he made an indelible impression on all those who knew him and on generations of veterans who have passed through the doors of the Veterans Outreach Center. Tom and his family are in my thoughts at this difficult time," said Slaughter.
