Hauppauge, NY - Legislator Gonzalez has named Anna B. Middleton of Central Islip as the 2023 Woman Veteran honoree for the 9th District. Mrs. Middleton served honorably in the Vietnam War, and came to Suffolk County to raise her children in 1976. She returned to the private sector for her career, and held a variety of different positions with the Central Islip chapter of the American Legion since 1985 (including as post commander on three separate occasions, and as vice commander twice). She has also been a steadfast volunteer for many community causes since she retired. At the general body meeting of July 25th Mrs., Middleton was awarded a commemorative coin by the Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army from the New York South region for her exemplary military track record, and a proclamation from Legislator Gonzalez’s office.
Legislator Gonzalez is happy to commemorate the achievements and service of local community members, and Mrs. Middleton is no exception. He extends his sincerest gratitude for her long track record of helping others, and is proud to designate her as this year’s Woman Veteran honoree for the 9th District.
