LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION mourning the untimely death of Military Security
Contractor Joseph Morabito of Haines Falls, New York, and paying tribute
to his courageous actions

WHEREAS, The courage and bravery of our military personnel since the
United States Armed Forces commenced Operation Iraqi Freedom will ensure
our continued role as a Nation which embodies the ideals of democracy,
and as a defender of liberty for people throughout the world; and
WHEREAS, Members of the Armed Services from the State of New York, who
have served so valiantly and honorably during Operation Enduring Free-
dom, deserve a special salute from this Legislative Body; and
WHEREAS, It is with feelings of deepest regret that this Legislative
Body mourns the untimely death of Military Security Contractor Joseph
Morabito of Haines Falls, in Greene County, New York, and pays tribute
to his courageous actions; he died in Afghanistan while conducting
training on Saturday, June 8, 2013; and
WHEREAS, In the 1970s, 54 year-old Joseph Morabito enlisted in the
United States Navy; he then spent some time working in law enforcement
before working for the United States Military as a private security
contractor working as part of a group teaching civilians in Iraq and
Afghanistan how to protect and serve their country as police officers;
he would have turned 55 years-old on Monday, June 10th; and
WHEREAS, The banner of freedom will always wave over our beloved New
York and all of America, the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave;
and
WHEREAS, Residents of this great State must never forget the courage
with which these men and women served their country, and must recognize
that no greater debt is owed than that owed to those who gave their
lives for their beloved Nation and to those who continue to be missing
in action; and
WHEREAS, The freedoms and security we cherish as Americans come at a
very high price for those serving in the military in times of conflict;
it is fitting and proper that we who are the beneficiaries of those who
risk their lives, leaving their families behind, express our appreci-
ation and eternal gratitude for their sacrifices and courageous acts;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
mourn the untimely death of Military Security Contractor Joseph Morabito
of Haines Falls, New York, and to pay tribute to his courageous actions;
and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Andrea Morabito, wife of Joseph Morabito.
