Towns, villages and cities district-wide are currently in the process of selecting their nominees and will eventually nominate one person from each town. If you would like to nominate someone, please contact your local supervisor or board. Nominations are due by September 7, 2012.

The Veteran’s Hall of Fame was created by Senator Ball, and designed to honor outstanding veterans from throughout the 40th Senate District. Each veteran that will be honored will be included on a traveling wall that will tour local municipalities throughout the 40th district.
“The veterans being nominated by their communities are hand-picked because they chose a path of courage, honor, integrity and bravery; a path that helped shape America as we know it, protecting our way of life and liberty,” said Senator Greg Ball. “America is not a great country because of its politicians, it’s a great country because of our veterans.”
Senator Ball will hold a ceremony and reception on November 1st at the Peekskill Middle School to welcome his second class of honorees to the New York State 40th Senate District Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
