CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- The Town of Cortlandt plans to memorialize local veterans who fought in the Vietnam War, according to Supervisor Linda Puglisi.
The memorial will be on the front lawn of Town Hall on Heady Street, she said.
Cortlandt already has a Purple Hearts Veterans Memorial in the Town Hall’s courtyard, where it flies the flags of all branches of the military.
It also has a Veteran’s Memorial at Cortlandt Waterfront Park in the hamlet of Verplanck.
The town is asking local veterans or their families to send in vets’ names for inclusion on a plaque.
The honoree’s branch of service and rank are also needed, Puglisi said.
The monument will be dedicated sometime in the fall.
In her announcement, Puglisi also mentioned that Willy Nazario, a Vietnam vet and chairman of the Cortlandt Regional Veterans Committee, has been named national commander of the Purple Heart organization.
To contact the town about including a name on the new memorial call (914)-734-1002, or email Puglisi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Letters can be mailed to Town Hall, 1 Heady St., Cortlandt Manor, 10567.
