WHEREAS, Organizations and events which serve the interests of the
people of the Empire State merit the commendation of this Legislative
Body; and
WHEREAS, Veterans of the Armed Services from the State of New York,
who have served so valiantly and honorably in wars in which this coun-
try's freedom was at stake, as well as in the preservation of peace in
peacetime, deserve a special salute from this Legislative Body; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is moved with great respect and rever-
ent esteem to pay tribute to the men and women who so courageously serve
and have served in the Armed Forces of the United States; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Tri-County Council of Vietnam Era Veterans of the Joseph E. Zaloga
American Legion Post 1520 upon the occasion of sponsoring the Please
Remember Me Project; and
WHEREAS, On Tuesday, May 7, 2013, the Joseph E. Zaloga American Legion
Post 1520 of Albany, New York, is hosting a ceremony to honor those
Capital Region veterans who served from World War II to the present in
overseas operations of the United States Armed Forces, and who paid the
supreme sacrifice in giving their lives to preserve freedom; and
WHEREAS, In addition, on Saturday, May 18, 2013, the first annual

cles and veteran bikers from local organizations along four miles of

unselfishly devote their lives to the preservation of order and the
protection of others, deserve to be recognized, commended and thanked by
the people of the State of New York for their service and for their
dedication to their communities, their State and their Nation; they are
worthy and due full praise for their commitment and noble endeavors; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when organiza-
tions and events of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to
our attention, they should be recognized by all the citizens of this
great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
