    CROSS RIVER, N.Y. – State Sen. Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) will unveil his traveling Veterans’ Wall of Fame Thursday evening, Jan. 12, at John Jay Middle School in Cross River at 6 p.m.

    The wall pays tribute to the 27 veterans from throughout the Hudson Valley who were honored at a Veterans’ Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony back in November. Each city, town and village within the senator’s district was asked to nominate a veteran.

    “The veterans whose faces grace this wall were nominated by their communities, hand-picked because they chose a path of courage, honor, integrity and bravery,” Ball said. “It is a path that helped shape America as we know it, protecting our way of life and liberty.”

    The wall will tour local municipalities throughout the Ball’s district. The wall will be on display at John Jay Middle School for a week before it moves to Yorktown High School on Jan. 17. Other future stops include Haldane High School, Hendrick on Hudson High School, Putnam Valley High School, Mahopac High School and Webutuck High School.
