Senator John E. Brooks (SD-8) today invited local residents of the 8th Senate District to nominate veterans from their community to be honored in this year’s New York State Veterans’ Hall of Fame.
The Veterans’ Hall of Fame is designed to pay tribute to New Yorkers whose bravery and courage in the U.S. Armed Forces is complemented by their service to the community.
“The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect our freedom. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment,” said Senator Brooks.
The Senate will honor one Veteran from the 8th Senate District along with other honorees from throughout the state on Tuesday, May 16, at a ceremony in Albany. Each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special online exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these exemplary New York Veterans.
The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from New York who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life. Their honorable service to our nation deserves the special recognition that only a Hall of Fame can provide, as a fitting expression of our gratitude and admiration.
