NEW YORK -- New York Army National Guard Staff Sgt. Lewis Swartz from Company A, Recruiting and Retention Command, removes snow at the Bedford Avenue Armory here in Brooklyn after the Nor’easter storm Jan. 12.
The snow storm is the second in recent weeks, prompting the mayor’s office to declare a snow emergency to expedite the clearing of city streets.
“Snow or no snow, the mission continues," said Swartz. “New York is a city that never stops, so if there is someone out there who wants to join, we make sure our doors are open, along with a clear path,” he added with a smile.
