A holiday mission to feed Long Island's veterans got underway Wednesday.
Food was packed up at Ragazzi Italian Kitchen in Smithtown and was then delivered to about 30 shelters that help homeless veterans.
Organizers say their effort is just them doing their duty.
"They need us to be out there for them. And for me, the fact that I'm able to do it, it's my requirement, I have to do this," says one organizer. "And you know, a lot of the veterans out there -- you have a full-blown colonel out there. It's an obligation, we will take care of our brothers and sisters."
Organizer Robert Cornicelli also called on the government to do more to help veterans.
