New York State Senator Mark Grisanti recently named Kelly Carrigg as the seventh recipient of his "Veteran of the Month" recognition program.
A resident of the Town of Hamburg who served with the 82nd Airborne Division, Carrigg is the seventh recipient of a monthly honor presented by Senator Grisanti following an application and nomination process coordinated by staff members in Grisanti's veterans liaison office.
"I am pleased to recognize Lieutenant Colonel Carrigg with this honor," said Senator Grisanti, a member of the New York State Senate's Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committees. "Her career of distinguished service is very impressive and her current community involvement is admirable. Now working as a school teacher, she is an ideal role model for our young people."
