Sen. Kathy Marchione seeks nominees for 2013 New York State Veterans' Hall of Fame
The Saratogian, Saturday, March 23, 2013
Sen. Kathleen A. Marchione invites residents in the 43rd State Senate District, which includes parts of Rensselaer, Saratoga and Washington counties and all of Columbia County, to nominate veterans as 2013 inductees into the New York State Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
The online Veterans’ Hall of Fame is designed to pay tribute and honor the selfless service and personal sacrifice of New York veterans whose courageous service in America’s Armed Forces is complemented by their service to the community.
The state Senate will honor a distinguished veteran from the 43rd Senate District and also from each Senate district across the state during a ceremony in which each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special online exhibit featuring the contributions, heroism, service and sacrifice of New York’s veterans. The ceremony will take place May 21 in Albany.
Marchione will name one veteran residing within the 43rd Senate District as her 2013 nominee to the Hall of Fame and will honor all local nominees during a special public recognition ceremony this summer. Applications for the Hall of Fame are due back to Marchione’s office by April 14.
The New York State Veterans’ Hall of Fame — online at www.nysenate.gov/honoring-our-veterans — was launched in 2005 to recognize outstanding veterans.
