NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — A Baldwinsville man and Vietnam War Veteran was honored on Tuesday in Albany.
Sergeant Howard Rose was in the state capital for the ceremonies. He trained as a light infantryman.
In his time overseas, Rose earned a combat infantry badge, expert rifleman, commendation medal and Vietnam campaign medal.
Rose talked about his experiences while serving our country.
“For me, I was 19-years-old, I didn’t know much about the war,” Rose said. “I was drafted into the Army and like my fathers and my uncles and so on, I gladly took in the, you know, call for duty.”
The Hall of Fame honored veterans from New York who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life.
