The Huntington Town Board recognized Albert Statton III, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Army and 32-year volunteer for the Greenlawn Fire Department.
The honor came last week during the Town Board meeting. Statton is also a three-time cancer survivor whose commitment to the community serves as an inspiration to many in Huntington.
He is also the lead organizer for Operation Enduring Care, a program that provides donations of clothing, bedding, and non-perishable food items to veterans who need help.
He was named Legionnaire of the Year 2021 by the American Legion Greenlawn Post 1244 for his many contributions.
