The following is a press release from State Senator Marty Golden’s office:
Albany– Senator Martin J. Golden (R,C,I-Brooklyn) today is announcing that he is seeking nominations from local residents of veterans whose service on behalf of our nation designates them as an inductee of the New York State Veteran’s Hall of Fame.
Senator Marty Golden stated, “The Senate takes this opportunity to honor the brave men and women who serve our nation and protect our freedom as members of the military. The Senate Veteran’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to all who serve, but also singles out for special recognition those whose sacrifices and service have helped make our nation and our community better places to live.”
The Senate will honor a distinguished veteran from our area and throughout the state at a May 22nd Albany ceremony, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special on-line exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these exemplary New York Veterans.
To nominate someone, residents can request a nomination form by contacting Senator Golden’s office at (718) 238-6044 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All nominations must include a biography of approximately 250 words, that must include the nominee’s rank and file at time of discharge or end of military service as well as awards and/or achievement, and a high resolution photograph. Nominations are due by April 23, 2012.
The New York State Senate Veteran’s Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life. Their meritorious service to our nation deserves the special recognition that only a Hall of Fame can provide, as a fitting expression of our gratitude and admiration.
