  Congratulations to Mr. Paul Sansone, Sr. and the Sansone Auto Mall Team for their recent acceptance of the National 1st place Large Employer of the Year Award in Reno on August 23, 2017 (see attached pic). Our 50 page submittal, with DVD, for this very prestigious National Award included their accomplishments and future plans for training, hiring all veterans including soon to be released incarcerated veterans and parolees. Mr. Sansone also built a 7,500 sf, $1M Military Training Center, at which many of our Legion members attended the ribbon cutting.

This significant Award follows our first place National Large Employer of the Year to NYSA (NY Shipping Association) last year for their hiring 400 veterans as a result of our dedicated Longshoreman job fair; and the previous year’s receipt of our first place National Homeless Veteran Outreach Award. Not bad for our “smaller” Department – 3 consecutive first place National Awards! Thanks to all actively involved!
