Senator Andrew Lanza Seeks Local Nominations For Veterans' Hall Of Fame


    Senator Andrew Lanza announced today that he’s seeking nominations for the New York State Senate’s “Veterans' Hall of Fame,” an online tribute to the military and civilian lives of distinguished veterans from across New York State.

    “So many veterans served our nation courageously and honorably, and then returned home to lift the lives of our local communities.  The Senate Veterans' Hall of Fame is just one more way to give a local veteran a well-deserved and well-earned expression of our gratitude and admiration,” said Lanza. 

    The Senate established its Veterans' Hall of Fame in 2005.  It’s designed to honor New York veterans whose service in the United States Armed Forces is accompanied by service to the community and accomplishments as a civilian, and includes veterans representing Senate districts from throughout New York State.  Senators conduct induction ceremonies within their respective legislative districts and at the Capitol coinciding with veterans-related observances throughout the year.  

    This year’s Senate Veterans' Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Albany is planned for Tuesday, May 20, 2014, just before the Memorial Day weekend observances.  

    Lanza  is accepting nominations for this year’s inductee until Friday, March 21, 2014. 

    Nomination letters, which should include a short biography highlighting the nominee’s military and civilian service and achievements, can be sent to Lanza's Albany office: Room 915, Legislative Office Building, Albany, New York  12247. 

    Nomination letters can also be e-mailed to or submitted online using the form below.
