Semper Fi Parents of the Hudson Valley
Semper Fi Parents of Hudson Valley (SFPHV) is a volunteer organization that has been active in the community since 2005. Started originally as a group for Marine parents, the organization is inclusive of ALL MILITARY HEROES and for ALL FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS and SUPPORTERS. While Semper Fi is generally associated with the Marines who adopted the motto as their own in 1883, the meaning of Semper Fidelis is 'always faithful'. Regardless of which branch of the Armed Forces one may feel connected to, it is easy to feel 'always faithful' to all of our troops and our veterans...in support of everything they have given to us.

Finklestein & Partners
The Veterans Services Group (VSG) at Finkelstein & Partners is a team of experienced and compassionate Veterans’ advocates and VA accredited attorneys who specialize in obtaining disability compensation benefits for Veterans and their families. VSG provides assistance with appealing decisions by the VA that negatively impact a Veteran’s benefits. Combat-related wounds, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and toxin/dioxin exposure (such as Agent Orange in Vietnam) are just a few examples of the types of cases the VSG handles. We represent Veterans in their disability compensation cases as well as eligible surviving spouses in their appeals for accrued and dependency and indemnity compensation (DIC) benefits in all 50 states.
The mission of the Veterans Services Group is to serve the brave men and women who have risked their lives defending our freedom. We aim to competently represent Veterans with the same dedication they have shown in serving our country.
