North Salem, Sergeant Andrew Sandor
Sergeant Andrew Sandor has served in three oversees deployments in the U.S. Marines. The first in the Mediterranean, during the joint US and NATO Operation off the coast of Bosnia, the second, a far east deployment, and the third, a Mediterranean deployment. Sergeant Sandor is the Adjutant for the North Salem American Legion, and has volunteered with many organizations, including the North Salem Cub Scouts, North Salem Little League and John Jay youth football. Sergeant Sandor has two children.
“I am proud to accept the nomination of Sergeant Andrew Sandor into the Veterans’ Hall of Fame. Andrew has heroically served our nation and protected the freedoms we live under today. He has selflessly risked his life in territories as far from home as the Adriatic sea off the coast of Bosnia,” said Senator Greg Ball. “It is because of great men like Andrew and the sacrifices he has made for our liberty, that America is the shining beacon of hope and freedom throughout the world.”
"I first met Andy Sandor when he was my Fire Instructor at the Westchester Fire Training Institute in Valhalla. Andy and the other instructors at Valhalla are instrumental in the development and ongoing professional training of Firefighter volunteers throughout Westchester. On personal note, it is a privilege serving alongside Andy and the other brave volunteers of the Croton Falls Fire Department.
Andy's military service is, without question, meritorious. Recipient of the Armed Forces Service medal for active combat near Beirut with Special Operations Forces he put himself in harm's way daily to preserve our freedom." - Bruce Barton Buchholtz, Councilman
