State senators seek nominees for Veterans Hall of Fame


ALBANY - State Senator Patty Ritchie is now accepting nominations from veterans’ posts, family members and community leaders in Central and Northern New York for induction in the New York State Senate’s “Veterans Hall of Fame” program.

The online Hall of Fame pays tribute to New Yorkers who have served their country in the US Armed Forces and made significant contributions to their communities.

Each state senator can induct one veteran annually, who will be honored at a special ceremony in Albany on May 21st. All nominees from Oswego, Jefferson and St. Lawrence counties will be recognized locally at an event May 10 to be held at Ft. Drum.

The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize 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.

To download a nomination form, or learn more about past nominees, visit or call (315) 782-3418. All nominations must be received by April 19.
