ONEONTA, 04/09/12 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) today invited local residents to nominate veterans from their community whose service on behalf of our nation designates them worthy of induction into the New York State Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
“The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life,” said Senator Seward. “Their meritorious service to our nation deserves the special recognition that only a hall of fame can provide, as a fitting expression of our gratitude and admiration.”
This on-line hall of fame is designed to pay tribute to New Yorkers whose gallantry in the U.S. Armed Forces is complemented by their service to the community.
The Senate will honor a distinguished veteran from our area and throughout the state at a May 22nd Albany ceremony, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special on-line exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these exemplary New York veterans.
Nomination forms can be found below or can be requested by calling Senator Seward’s office at (607) 432-5524. Completed forms can be mailed to:
Senator James L. Seward
