Albertson Commissioner, NYS Comptroller Speak on Memorial Day
On Memorial Day, May 27, 2019, Albertson Water District Commissioner Howard Abbondondelo and New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli both spoke at VFW Post 5253, Searingtown Road in Albertson NY.
Commissioner Abbondondelo, an Albertson resident, addressed the large group of assembled veterans, families and friends. “I am personally grateful to each and every veteran who served our flag, especially those who gave their all to defend it. As someone whose brother, uncles, father and grandfather served in the military, I am honored to address all gathered here as well as those on active duty who continue to keep our great country safe from all perils.”
Comptroller DiNapoli, formerly an Albertson resident, said “the courage and commitment of those we honor today demonstrate that American values are far more than words and slogans—they live in each of us. On this day and every day, let’s pay tribute and respect to our fallen heroes.”
