Honoring Our Veterans

Today, November 11th, we honor and celebrate those who gave so much to provide us freedoms, hope and respect throughout the world.

Today, November 11th, we honor and celebrate those who gave so much to provide us freedoms, hope and respect throughout the world. On Veterans Day and every day of the year in fact, I have been fortunate enough to work alongside my office's Veterans Advisory Committee, and countless others to offer our support, resources and assistance to veterans across New York State. In observance of Veterans Day - a holiday we observe in honor of the men and women who have served in our nation's armed forces, I want to extend my thanks and the thanks of all residents across the 14th Senatorial District, for the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families.

I want to also again congratulate and acknowledge our 2020 Veterans Hall of Fame Honoree, Ms. Stanlee Richards, RN. While the pandemic prevented us from having our normal in person ceremony in Albany, we remain appreciative of the work she has done and continues to do in our community and as a member of the armed forces and the Chief Nursing Officer at NYC Health + Hospitals/Carter.
