RONKONKOMA, NEW YORK, USA, December 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Long Island Council of the Navy League of the United States recently held a World War II Veterans Recognition Event in conjunction with Veteran’s Day. The event honored the heroic service efforts of three Long Island World War II veterans who protected our freedoms during their service in the United States military: Lieutenant Commander Jules V. Steinhauer of Farmingdale, NY, Radio Technician 1st Class Victor Nelson of Bethpage, NY, and the late William J.

In honor of their bravery and service, the Long Island Council of the Navy League of the United States presented to Steinhouser, Nelson and the family of late Evanzia special awards that stated, “Thank You For Your Service To Our Country and Your Commitment To Our Community.”
