indebted to our valiant firefighters who exhibit courage and bravery

WHEREAS, A man of singular distinction, Martin Tighe has continually
demonstrated extreme competence, extraordinary intelligence, and
diligent leadership in his unwavering service to his community and
profession and consequently has been selected for this most prestigious
honor; and

WHEREAS, Born in July of 1964 in the Bronx, New York, Martin "Marty"
Tighe grew up in Throggs Neck where he attended St. Francis de Chantal

others and a tireless sense of community to forsake precious time with
