UNA-USA Queens Chapter Highlight over the years...
Our United Nations Association (UNA-USA) team was very pleased to be able to meet with you on June 11th -- and especially to get the opportunity of meeting with Congressman Gibson himself. We were heartened to hear that he had a good understanding of the importance of UN peacekeeping, and told us of his positive experience in Haiti in 2010, where he commanded the 82nd Airborne Division’s 2nd Brigade Combat Team (BCT) during the opening month of that humanitarian relief operation. We urge him to support the full funding of UN Regular Budget and Peacekeeping as they come up for appropriations before Congress.
