Valiant veterans honored in Lynbrook, East Rockaway


Just days before the country stops to remember its heroes on Veterans Day, 11 local veterans were recognized in a Hall of Honor ceremony at the Lynbrook Public Library on Nov. 2.

Thomas Finan was chosen to be honored by American Legion Post 335, while Keely Coco represented Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2307 in Lynbrook and Harry Hansen was selected by the VFW Post 335 in East Rockaway.

Assemblywoman Judy Griffin hosted the event, which was attended by Hempstead Town Supervisor Laura Gillen, Town Clerk Sylvia Cabana, East Rockaway Mayor Bruno Romano, Lynbrook Deputy Mayor Michael Hawxhurst and East Rockaway Village Trustee Steve Fried.

“The veterans of Assembly District 21 have demonstrated dedication, bravery, compassion, and their commitment to service does not go unnoticed,” Griffin said.
