Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy is again hosting a Veterans Awards Program to honor four local veterans for their service and commitment to their fellow Americans.
“Armistice Day later this summer marks 69 years since World War II ended,” said McCoy. “We are losing veterans every day with the normal passage of time. All of our veterans deserve to be honored while they are still with us.”
The veteran’s celebration will take place on June 10 at 10:30 a.m. in the Cahill Room of the Harold L. Joyce County Office Building at 112 State Street in Albany. Those to be honored are Lillian Yonally, Arnold J. Townsend, both of whom served in World War II and Vietnam veterans Joseph Pollicino and Larry Turner. Each of these veterans has had a positive impact on the community and served our country with distinction.
