Whitestone resident John McHugh Sr. was honored last week by the Jefferson Democratic Club of Northeast Queens for his service during World War II.

Assemblyman Ed Braunstein presented a proclamation and state Sen. Tony Avella presented a resolution saluting McHugh who is a veteran of the Battle of Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge. He is the recipient of many awards including the Silver Star for gallantry in action and the Bronze Star for meritorious service.

Celebrating with him were Matthew Silverstein, left, Avella, Carol Gresser, Braunstein, David Fisher and City Councilman-Elect Paul Vallone.

Welcome to the discussion.
