Annual On-Line Hall of Fame Induction
State Senator John J. Bonacic (R/I/C - Mount Hope) today invited local residents from the 42nd Senate District to nominate veterans from their community whose service on behalf of our nation designates them as an inductee of the New York State Veteran’s Hall of Fame.
This on-line Hall of Fame is designed to pay tribute to the New Yorker’s whose gallantry in the U.S. Armed Forces is complemented by their service to the community.
“The Senate takes this opportunity to honor the brave men and women who serve our nation and protect our freedom as members of the military,” said Senator John Bonacic. “The Senate Veteran’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to all who serve, but also singles out for special recognition, those whose sacrifices and service have helped make our nation and our community better places to live.”
The Senate will honor a distinguished veteran from the 42nd Senate District 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.
Those who wish to nominate a veteran who lives in the 42nd Senate District, which includes the Counties of Delaware, Sullivan, Orange and Ulster may email JillianDeuel@gmail.com  with their nominee suggestion and information about their nominee. Nominees must be received by Friday, April 27, 2012.
