SARATOGA SPRINGS — A ceremony honoring the Veteran of the Year for 2020-2021 will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, in the public room of the New York State Military Museum at 61 Lake Ave. in Saratoga Springs.
The annual award is co-sponsored by the Friends of the New York State Military Museum and the Capital District of New York Chapter of the Association of the United States Army.
There was no Veteran of the Year ceremony in 2020 because of the COVID pandemic. The museum was closed throughout 2020 but reopened earlier this year. The 2020 and 2021 ceremonies are being combined this year.
Presidents of the two co-sponsor organizations will present the award. A proclamation by the congressman of the Veteran of the Year will be read and remarks by the Adjutant General of the State of New York will be given. Refreshments are being donated by Dunkin’ Donuts. The event is free and open to the public. Face masks are required.
