VFW Post Member Inducted into NYS Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame – 5/20/14

Tony Marsella was nominated by Senator George Latimer to be inducted into the New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame.  The Kemper Memorial Park Preservation Fund (KMPPF) was the driving force behind this well deserved selection.  The induction took place on Tuesday, May 20 in Albany.  (May 20 happened to be Tony’s 90th birthday.)  The ceremony was attended by Tony’s wife Josephine, daughter Donna and other family members, together with Commander Burt Corwin and Jan Northrup, President of KMPPF.  There was a reception for Tony hosted jointly by the KMPPF and VFW Post 1156 at the post on Sunday, May 25 to allow his many comrades and friends who cannot attend the ceremony in Albany to congratulate him. http://mamaroneckreview.com/wwii-vet-keeps-memory-alive/
