Same script puts Mount in hockey finals

March 12, 2011

WARWICK -- Talk about deja vu!

“The sad part is a lot of veterans, especially Vietnam veterans, don’t know what’s available to them (in terms of benefits from the Veterans Administration),” said Rick Vaccari, a DAV supervisor.

But it also had to deal with its worst offensive showing of the season.
