DiSanto Announces Virtual Wall of Honor Recognition for Area Veterans

HARRISBURG—Senator John DiSanto (Dauphin/Perry), in advance of Veterans Day 2020 on November 11, invites the veterans of the 15th State Senate District to submit their names for inclusion on a Virtual Wall of Honor on the senator’s website.

While DiSanto had hoped to hold his annual Veterans Appreciation Breakfast again this fall, because of COVID-19 mitigation recommendations and the resulting challenges with scheduling an indoor venue, an event of this size will not be able to be held.

Instead, from October 26 through November 20, a page on DiSanto’s website will serve as a Virtual Wall of Honor and list all of the veterans who have submitted their information for recognition. Information can be submitted online at www.SenatorDiSanto.com. Veterans or their families may also contact DiSanto’s office at 717-787-6801 for a printed submission form.

In addition to including veterans’ names on the Virtual Wall of Honor, special features and additional informational resources and opportunities for scheduling personal consultations about benefits and services for veterans will be found on DiSanto’s website.

Regarding his Virtual Wall of Honor, DiSanto said, “While I would have preferred to share fellowship in person, I am thankful that technology allows me to recognize our area veterans and thank them for their service and sacrifice. I look forward to resuming my Veterans Appreciation Breakfast next year.”

Veterans currently residing and deceased veterans whose last address was in the 15th Senatorial District are eligible for the Virtual Wall of Honor. Family members and friends are welcome to submit on behalf of deceased veterans so their service may also be recognized.
