A Bronx councilman recognized some of the borough's veterans Friday ahead of Veterans Day.
Councilman Andy King invited veterans and guest speakers to the event.
Some issues he sought to address were issues that vets face after returning home, like health care, PTSD and trouble finding jobs.
King and others also accepted the 22 pushup challenge to bring awareness to veteran suicides, a reference to the Department of Veterans Affairs report that found a vet commits suicide every 22 days.
