ITHACA, N.Y. –– With social distancing measures in place and many community events canceled, the Tompkins County Department of Veterans Services (TCDVS) and Team Red, White, and Blue-Ithaca (Team RWB) wanted to make sure the nation’s military Veterans were not forgotten over the holiday weekend.

In that spirit, TCDVS and Team RWB partnered with the Ithaca Voice to ask our readers to submit their photos showing their weekend activities as a way to be together while staying socially distant.

Here’s what you sent us.
