Yorktown Heights resident, Alexander Nardone, 95, was presented with a Proclamation from state Sen. Terrence Murphy’s office to honor his service as a World War II veteran. The Proclamation cited Nardone’s exemplary service as a member of the Air Force serving in the China, India and Burma theater, where he parachuted into hostile territory. Nardone had received a Certificate of Appreciation from President Harry S. Truman for “the essential contribution he made during stress of combat.”
A long-time Yorktown Heights resident, Nardone was a civil servant for the post office and a self-employed owner of a manufacturing business. He is a member of the Yorktown American Legion Post. Chris Capoccia from Senator Murphy’s office was joined by Tim Leddy, President and CEO of Visiting Nurse Services in Westchester to present the award. Leddy worked with the Senator’s office to cite Mr. Nardone’s record of service to his country and his community as we approach Veterans Day.
