New York State Senator Mark Grisanti recently named Joseph Pasek as the sixth recipient of his “Veteran of the Month” recognition program.
A resident of the City of Tonawanda who served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam, Pasek is the sixth recipient of a monthly honor presented by Senator Grisanti following an application and nomination process coordinated by staff members in Grisanti’s veterans liaison office.
“I am pleased to recognize Joseph with this honor,” said Senator Grisanti, a member of the New York State Senate’s Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committees. “I commend him for his career of distinguished service and applaud him for his work as an active member of the Vietnam Veterans of America chapter in Tonawanda, where he serves on their board of directors. His community involvement is admirable, especially what he has done over the past two years with the ‘Come Fly A Kite For Homeless Veterans’ event.”
