Senator Ken LaValle is requesting nominations for induction into the N.Y. State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame. The hall of fame is designed to pay tribute to the men and women of New York who selflessly served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

“Every year at this time, we take this opportunity to recognize the distinguished service of one of our notable men or women in our senate district who so admirably gave back to our country,” LaValle said in a press release yesterday. “We are very fortunate to have so many potential nominees to choose from for inclusion in the hall. It is my hope that everyone who is aware of a special veteran submits a nomination for consideration.”

The senate will honor a distinguished veteran from our area and throughout the state on Tuesday, May 16 during 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 and in a printed book to memorialize their status.

The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame honors and recognizes outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life. Their meritorious 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.

Nominate a veteran online at LaValle’s website.  Nominations are by Thursday April 6.
