New York State Senate members are currently seeking nominations for the induction of new honorees into the New York State Senate Veteran’s Hall of Fame.
State Senator Marty Golden sent out a press release this morning detailing the honors.
“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,” Golden said in the statement. “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 New York State Senate plans to honor a distinguished military veteran from New York State at a May 22, ceremony in the state capital at Albany. The inductee’s name, photograph, and biography are to become part of a special online exhibit, which will document their contribution to the nation for posterity.
