VETERANS HALL OF FAME
William K. Kastner, a Vietnam veteran and longtime director of the Steuben County Veterans Service Agency, was recently inducted into the State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame.
Thank you for visiting the New York State Senateís online Veterans Hall of Fame.
My colleagues and I are pleased to have this opportunity to honor the service of distinguished veterans from across New York State. Itís designed to honor New Yorkers whose service in the United States Armed Forces is accompanied by service to the community and accomplishments as a civilian.
From my legislative district, the stateís 53rd Senate District (comprised of Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and a portion of Tompkins County), the inaugural Veterans Hall of Fame honoree, in 2005, was the late Frank C. "Fritz" Pesesky. As youíll see, Fritz is a well-known figure in Chemung County veteransí affairs and longtime director of the countyís Veterans Service Office.
This year, we recently had the occasion to pay tribute to the service of William K. Kastner of Steuben County, a Vietnam veteran and longtime director of the Steuben County Veterans Service Agency.
Itís a privilege to be able to honor the service of Fritz Pesesky and Bill Kastner in this way, and Iím looking forward to future opportunities to pay tribute to additional 53rd District veterans.
