For more than 30 years, New Yorkers have celebrated Fleet Week as a way to thank our troops for their service. 

Here on Staten Island, a group of volunteers organize a series of events in Stapleton to connect the community with our service members. But this year those events are in jeopardy, due to a lack of funding.

NY1's Anthony Pascale learned more about what's being done to save the events from Marc Garafano, President of SI Fleet Week.
