Albany County Executive Mike Breslin and the Honor-A-Veteran Committee commemorated World War II veteran Thomas J. Green, Jr. in a ceremony held on Tuesday, September 7, 2004, in the Cahill Room of the Albany County Office Building.
Green, a lifelong resident of Albany, joined the United States Army in 1944, serving with the 89th Division during World War II in Central Europe and Rhineland. After his service, he worked for the United States Postal Service for 30 years, retiring in 1987. Green was very active with the Catholic War Veterans Pat Aiezza Post #1181, serving in every position including past commander. He was also a member of the Bucci-McTague American Legion Post #1530 and helped raise funds for the Veterans Monument Restoration Fund.
Green was also very active in helping children and youth in our community. He helped establish a Drum and Bugle Corp, giving many children of Albany’s South End an opportunity to develop an appreciation for music. He purchased and distributed sporting equipment for underprivileged youth and sponsored Christmas parties for children. He helped raise funds to support a local wrestler in his bid to make the U.S. Olympic Team and also supported State and National Spelling Bee contestants and the Boy Scouts.
