2017 "Veterans Hall of Fame" Honor

The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans who have distinguished themselves both in the military and civilian life  Their service to our nation deserves our gratitude and admiration.

I am inviting Sixth Senate District residents to nominate a veteran (or veterans) from their community whose service on behalf of our nation designates them for induction into the New York State Veterans Hall of Fame.  The Hall of Fame is designed to pay tribute to New Yorkers whose gallantry in the U.S. Armed Forces and service to their community reflects their outstanding efforts on behalf of others.

The winner from my district will be honored at a special ceremony in the State Capital in Albany on May 16th.   Here each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special on-line exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these exemplary New York Veterans.

Those wishing to nominate a veteran for this special honor should contact my Community Office (phone: 516-739-1700 or email: hannon@nysenate.gov) for information and an application.  

**The deadline for submission is April 6.**
