LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Anthony Cybulski posthumously upon the
occasion of his designation for special recognition by Rensselaer County
at its Honor A Veteran Ceremony on April 8, 2013

WHEREAS, Members of the Armed Services from the State of New York, who
have served so valiantly and honorably in wars in which this country's
freedom was at stake, as well as in the preservation of peace in peace-
time, deserve a special salute; and
WHEREAS, It is the intent of this Legislative Body to commend those
who have served in times of active conflict, as well as those who have
served in times of peace; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor
Anthony Cybulski posthumously upon the occasion of his designation for
special recognition by Rensselaer County at its Deceased Honor A Veteran
Ceremony on Monday, April 8, 2013, at the Rensselaer County Office
Building's Hall of Heroes, Troy, New York; and
WHEREAS, The Hall of Heroes is a Memorial Display honoring those
courageous men and women of Rensselaer County, past and present, who
serve their country in time of conflict; the Deceased Honor A Veteran
Ceremony is held monthly; and
WHEREAS, Anthony Cybulski, who died in 2012 at the age of 86, served
his country with honor and distinction as a member of the United States
Navy during World War II as a Gunners Mate 2nd Class aboard the USS
LCI-651; he was awarded many active service medals, including the Naval
Achievement Medal for his bravery during the invasion of Iwo Jima; and
WHEREAS, A proud veteran, Anthony Cybulski kept a scrapbook filled
with pictures from World War II and kept in touch with many of his
friends from his time in the Navy; and
WHEREAS, For his courageous and dedicated service in the United States
military, Anthony Cybulski's name will be added to the Hall of Heroes on
a plaque listing other deceased veterans honored in 2013; and
WHEREAS, Residents of this great State must never forget the courage
with which these men and women served their country, and must recognize
that no greater debt is owed than that owed to those who gave their
lives for their beloved Nation and to those who continue to be missing
in action; and
WHEREAS, Having exhibited their patriotism both at home and abroad,
these men and women demonstrated their love for their country and merit
forevermore, the highest respect of their State and Nation; and
WHEREAS, Our Nation's veterans deserve to be recognized, commended and
thanked by the people of the State of New York for their service and for
their dedication to their communities, their State and their Nation;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Anthony Cybulski posthumously upon the occasion of his designation
for special recognition by Rensselaer County at its Honor A Veteran
Ceremony on April 8, 2013; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the family of Anthony Cybulski.
