Please nominate Gary Harvey for New York State Veterans Hall of Fame. Sara Harvey would like to do something special for her husband who is isolated in a nursing home after suffering a traumatic brain injury. There is not a better gift she can give him. Unfortunately, Gary has an abusive guardian who will not allow him to hold his wife’s hand and his wife is not allowed to hold his or kiss him. However, she is allowed to visit him for a maximum of four hours each week. During that time, Sara reads to Gary and talks to him about everyday life. He knows when she is there and reacts to different things she tells him. Gary is a proud US veteran and proudly served his country during the Vietnam War. This would honor him and fill his heart with pride. Please take a few minutes to go to this link and make the nomination. It will only cost you a few minutes of your time. Please message me if you have any questions.
His address is 555 St. Joseph’s Blvd. Elmira NY 14901. Gary Harvey served in the Army as a Special Force Ranger during the Vietnam War. He was honored with a National Service Defense Medal and as an expert M-16 rifleman.
SENATOR O’MARA ASKS FOR LOCAL NOMINATIONS FOR VETERANS’ HALL OF FAME
Albany, N.Y., April 4—State Senator Tom O’Mara (R-C, Big Flats) announced today that he’s seeking nominations for the New York State Senate’s “Veterans’ Hall of Fame,” an online tribute to the military and civilian lives of distinguished veterans from across New York State.
“So many veterans served our nation courageously and honorably, and then returned home to lift the lives of our local communities. The Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame is just one more way to give a local veteran a well-deserved and well-earned expression of our gratitude and admiration,” said O’Mara, who represents New York’s 58th Senate District encompassing Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben and Yates counties, and part of Tompkins County (the city and town of Ithaca, and the towns of Enfield, Newfield and Ulysses).
The Senate established its Veterans’ Hall of Fame in 2005. It’s designed to honor New York veterans whose service in the United States Armed Forces is accompanied by service to the community and accomplishments as a civilian, and includes veterans representing Senate districts from throughout New York State. Senators conduct induction ceremonies within their respective legislative districts and at the Capitol coinciding with veterans-related observances throughout the year.
This year’s Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Albany is planned for Tuesday, May 21, 2013, just before the Memorial Day weekend observances.
O’Mara is accepting nominations for this year’s inductee until Friday, April 26, 2013.
Nomination letters, which should include a short biography highlighting the nominee’s military and civilian service and achievements, can be sent to O’Mara’s Albany office: Room 812, Legislative Office Building, Albany, New York 12247.
Nomination letters can also be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or nominations can be submitted online using the form below.
The following area veterans have been inducted into the Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame by O’Mara:
— Philip C. Smith, a highly decorated Korean War combat veteran and well-known figure in Schuyler County government and veterans’ affairs as the former director of the Schuyler County Veterans’ Service Agency, was a Hall of Fame inductee in 2011; and
— J. Arthur “Archie” Kieffer, longtime Chemung County historian and a World War II combat veteran, was honored at a ceremony at the Chemung Valley History Museum in Elmira last May.
Other area veterans who are Hall of Fame members are the late Frank C. “Fritz” Pesesky, a veteran of World War II and former director of the Chemung County Veterans Service Office (2005); William K. Kastner, a Vietnam veteran and longtime director of the Steuben County Veterans Service Agency (2006); and the late Robert Laskaris, a highly decorated combat veteran and well-known figure in Chemung County veterans’ affairs (2008).

Gary Harvey is an American citizen who fought in the Vietnam War. He was one of the lucky ones who did not end up as a POW in an enemy camp as a prisoner, as so many of our young American soldiers did. Instead, Gary returned home to America, the land of the free. Or so he thought. In 2006, Gary suffered a heart attack and fell down the stairs and suffered a traumatic brain injury. He has been a prisoner of Chemung County for the past six years, where an attempt was made to end his life and where his wife Sara has repeatedly reported the inadequate care he has received. In addition to all of this abuse, Sara is only allowed to visit her husband for a few hours per week and only when a guard is in the room with her. Guardianship abuse is one of the worst abuses one human being can inflict on another and in this case, it just goes on and on.
Bobby Schindler, brother of the late Terry Schiavo, has now petitioned the court for guardianship of Gary. If this happens, Gary will finally be free to receive the second opinion and rehabilitative care he has been denied.

It is so hard to believe that there are so many abusive guardianships in America. I would like to believe that once you expose corruption and violations of the law, that immediate steps are taken to correct it; that the victims are given their God given rights back and every penny stolen from them is reimbursed, plus. However, for some strange reason, it appears to be “legal” to enslave innocent people; strip them of their civil and humanitarian rights; pillage and plunder and steal their estates; kidnap and incarcerate them against their will; isolate them from family, friends and loved ones; give them psychotropic drugs; perform needless surgeries on them; ruin their credit; sell all of their personal possessions including their jewelry and clothing down to their underwear; even telling them what they can and can’t eat.
Do you think this is fiction? See the stories of Gary Harvey, Ginger Franklin, Jewel Tinnon, Dorothy Wilson, Dorothy Partch. Just read the NASGA website and so many others. Wake up America. They will be ringing your doorbell next if we all don’t rise up against this as one voice.
