As an extension of the County’s Veteran’s Day Events and Tributes, Westchester County Executive George Latimer named November 8 as Veteran Joseph Frank Day.

Frank, a Port Chester native, is a distinguished combat Army Infantryman who served his nation overseas during World War II. He earned several commendations for his service, including the Purple Heart and the American Defense Service Medal, among others.

Today Frank holds the distinction of being the County's oldest living Veteran at the age of 106.

Latimer said: “We express our gratitude to Mr. Frank for his selfless service. His presence among us serves as a living link to the rich history of our nation and our County. He exemplifies the best of what has made Westchester great.”
