Bonacic invites nominations for Veterans Hall of Fame


February 26, 2014

ALBANY, NY — Sen. John Bonacic is inviting nominations for induction into the New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame from the 42nd Senate District. The online Hall of Fame represents extraordinary New Yorkers whose heroism in the United States Armed Forces is complimented by their service to the people in their community.

“This program provides an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the efforts of men and women who demonstrated tremendous courage during their time in the military,” said Sen. Bonacic. “The Veterans’ Hall of Fame recognizes their sacrifice and commitment to help secure the freedoms we enjoy today.”

The selected veteran from our area will participate in a ceremony followed by a luncheon held on May 20 in Albany. The photograph and biography of each honoree across the state will become part of a special online exhibit that tells the stories of the many contributions veterans make during and after their time in military service.

To nominate a veteran, send an email to Bonacic’s office at Catania@NYSenate.gov explaining the reason your nominee should be inducted. Nominations must include a brief biography of approximately 250 words, along with the veteran’s rank and file at time of discharge or end of military service.
