Senator Skoufis Inducts Haverstraw Local George Wargo, Sr. Into Veterans Hall of Fame
Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) recently honored PFC George Wargo, Sr.—a lifelong Haverstraw resident, US Army veteran, and dedicated community servant—as he was inducted into the New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame program was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves in both military and civilian life. In lieu of an in-person celebration in Albany amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Skoufis welcomed Wargo to his Garnerville office for an intimate presentation surrounded by family and local officials.
“George is a dedicated and esteemed veteran who has proven his commitment to his community time and time again,” said Senator Skoufis. “Be it as a lifetime member of the American Legion, serving at nearly all levels of local government, volunteering with the fire company, supporting the local Little League program, or any of his many, many commitments, no one is more dedicated to community than George Wargo, Sr. It is my distinct honor to induct him into the Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame, and I am immensely grateful for his service.”
