Albany, N.Y. – In an effort to show appreciation for the sacrifices of active duty service members, veterans and their families, Tully Rinckey PLLC and Hannaford Supermarkets will once again provide free turkeys to active duty and retired military personnel this Thanksgiving through the fifth annual “Turkeys for Veterans” program.

Rinckey, a U.S. Army veteran.
