Albany, N.Y., April 4—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R-C, Big Flats) announced today that he’s accepting 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 O’Mara, who represents New York’s 58th Senate District encompassing Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and part of Tompkins County (the city and town of Ithaca, and the towns of Enfield, Newfield and Ulysses).
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 21, 2013, just before the Memorial Day weekend observances.
