United Veterans Organization Hosts Veterans Day Service At Eisenhower Park

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano joined County Legislators Laura Schaefer and Rose Walker, members of the United Veterans Organization (UVO) and members of Long Island’s health care community, at the UVO’s annual Veteran’s Day service at Veteran’s Plaza in Field 6 of Eisenhower Park on Sunday, Nov. 5. The event included an opening address by County Executive Mangano and a performance by the St. Agnes Choir.

“On behalf of the residents of Nassau County, I thank all of the veterans who served our country in times of war and peace and our servicemen and women who are now defending freedom around the world,” said County Executive Mangano. “Today, at this beautiful memorial, we gather to recognize the sacrifices of those brave men and women, and vow to never forget all that they did to preserve the American Dream. Let us go forward with a personal pledge to honor our veterans each day and work together to improve their lives, as they did ours.”
