HUNTINGTON, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Susan A. Berland (D-Huntington, Babylon and Islip) attended the Veterans Testimonial Ceremony where she gave the keynote speech. The Veterans Testimonial is a project led by the Half Hollow Hills Community Library where Veterans from every era are interviewed and their stories recorded. The Veterans were presented with proclamations and a copy of their testimony recording. A separate recording is also sent to the Library of Congress for the Library’s Veterans History Project. “The Veterans Testimonial Project is an excellent way to honor our Veterans and ensure that their heroism and service to our great nation will be remembered for generations to come,” stated Legislator Susan A. Berland.
