The Gold Star Families Monument was unveiled and dedicated in Lafayette Park, in Albany, on Saturday, April 29th.

The monument honors the surviving families of military service members who have died while on active duty. We are proud to say that our Local 291 Carpenters played an imperative role in this merited project. Dave Moak, NRCC Albany Training Center Coordinator, Kevin Hicks, retired President of the Empire State Carpenters District Council and Legislative Director of the Tri-County Council of Vietnam Veterans, and the carpenters who participated in the construction of the monument, attended the ceremony on Saturday. 

Last year, the Gold Star Families of the Greater Capital District and the Tri-County Council of Vietnam Era Veterans launched a successful campaign and raised $75,000 for the project.

Speakers during the dedication included Hershel "Woody" Williams, who earned a Medal of Honor, the nation's highest award for combat heroism, retired congressman Michael McNulty of Green Island, a Gold Star brother, and Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan. 

We would like to send a sincere thank you to the Local 291 Carpenters for once again volunteering their time and skills for the benefit of the community.
