Mangano: 280 Veterans To Be Added To Walls Of Honor In Eisenhower Park

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and the Veterans Service Agency (VSA) today announced that 280 veterans will be added to the Walls of Honor in Eisenhower Park at a ceremony on Saturday, June 25th at 10am. Nearly 8,500 veterans will have been added to the Walls of Honor since the Monument Committee and Nassau County Veterans Monument Fund were established in 1991.

“The Walls of Honor were built for residents to commemorate the brave members of the United States Armed Forces who risked, and many of whom gave, their lives in order to protect our freedoms,” said County Executive Mangano. “Together, we pay respect to all those who served our nation.”

The Walls of Honor are open to all those who have served our great nation and were honorably discharged whether they served during war time or peace time. The Nassau County Veterans Monument Fund, Inc. is a private organization that collects a $100 donation for each veteran’s name to be added to the Walls. For applications, please call 516-804-5802. Donations can be mailed to The Nassau County Veterans Monument Fund, Inc., P.O. Box 7911, Hicksville, NY 11802-7911.

Since taking office in 2010, County Executive Mangano has enhanced services for Nassau’s 100,000 veterans, including free transportation to the Northport VA Hospital and the East Meadow Clinic. The Mangano administration also established 42 homes, located on Mitchel Field, to provide affordable housing for veterans and their families and an additional 18 homes for active-duty military personnel. Additionally, the County helped rehabilitate five two-bedroom townhouses in Hempstead for homeless veterans and their families.

For more information on Veteran Service Agency programs, veterans may visit the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency at 2201 Hempstead Turnpike, Building Q, in East Meadow or can call (516)-572-6565. If transportation is needed, veterans may call (516) 572-6526.
