New York State Senate Awards Ceremony


On Wednesday, October 29th, I attended the fifteenth annual New York State Senate Awards Ceremony, hosted by Senator Serphin Maltese and NYC Councilmember Anthony Como, at the Veterans Administration facility in St. Albans, Queens. Forty distinguished New York City veterans were honored for their service and sacrifice over more than half a century; in many cases the awards were accepted posthumously by family members. Senator Maltese invited me to be a guest speaker at the ceremony and graciously allowed me to conduct a book-signing afterwards. (Click here for bigger Scurvy Dog Pic!)
