    Department Website Takes Top Honors

    The Department of New York website is among the top in the nation.

    First Place Award

    That’s the word from the National American Legion Press Association (NALPA), which announced Oct. 3 that took first place honors in its 2014 media contest.

    New York won the Mary B. Howard First Place Award in the department-level category. NALPA Media Awards Manager Patrick Rourk called the award “prestigious” and “well-deserved.”

    The website officially launched in January, under the guidance of Department Public Relations Chair Robert Stronach, who also serves as webmaster.

    Stronach said the number of hits and page views has been growing. From January to Oct. 4, the website has had over 3 million hits, 576,862 page views and 36,827 unique visitors.
