Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st AD) recently honored Louis Palermo of Valley Stream for his service to our country. Palermo was named to the 2017 Veterans Hall of Honor and awarded a New York state proclamation commemorating the recognition.

“Louis Palermo is a model of bravery, and a credit to our community,” said Curran. “During his service in the U.S. Army, he stormed with beaches of Normandy with thousands of others on D-Day. He was wounded during the Battle of the Bulge for which he received a Purple Heart. Louis received other prestigious awards during his service, including a Bronze Star. In the local community, Louis has devoted himself to helping disabled veterans, he is a member of both the VFW and American Legion and he is a member of the Knights of Columbus. We would like to personally thank Louis Palermo for his service and dedication to our country and our community. I am proud to induct him into our Veterans Hall of Honor.”
