At a recent veterans appreciation ceremony, Suffolk County honored veterans for their accomplishments and others who have supported former military personnel after their return home.

“Every single soldier deserves our undying respect,” said Suffolk County Executive Steve  Bellone.  “We honor individuals, many of whom have served our country in uniform, and some non-veterans as well, but all have dedicated themselves to serving our returning veterans.  These are people who have stepped up and gone above and beyond to serve our veterans; they’re doing God’s work in their service.”

Among those honored were John Sehejong Ha of Plainview, a veteran of the Korean War and second vice president of the Korean War Veterans Central Long Island Chapter. He was honored for his service to the veterans of Suffolk County.

Others were honored for assisting veterans with jobs, housing, education, adjustment to civilian life and other needs.

Suffolk County Veterans Agency director Tom Ronayne, Congressman Tim Bishop and Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski also participated in the event.
