Midnight honor for marine.

The U.S. Navy selected and the Times Square Alliance sponsored a local New York City resident, naval reservist and business owner to participate in the City's New Year celebrations. Master chief petty officer Terence B. Hoey was selected because of his life-long ties to New York and his contributions to the Global War on Terrorism.

Hoey, along with representatives from the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard, were involved in Times Square events, including raising the ball at One Times Square, lowering the ball at midnight and opening the NASDAQ market on the first day of trading in 2004.

Hoey, a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Navy and Naval Reserve Force, was a first responder to the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

He was subsequently recalled to active duty for an unprecedented 20 months. Hoey conducted a variety of law enforcement and physical security missions during the post-9/11 Presidential Recall.

While detailed to the National Infrastructure Protection Center, an interagency program located at the FBI Headquarters, Hoey performed duties as infrastructure protection and intelligence analyst. He was selected to assist in the start-up of the Department of Homeland Security and the Homeland Security Center. Hoey was directly involved in the implementation of Operation Liberty Shield during hostilities associated with the war in Iraq. In July 2003, Hoey was recognized by the FBI Director Robert S. Mueller for "Exceptional Service in the Public Interest."

Terence B. Hoey is also president of Hoey & Associates, Inc., a consultancy specializing in real property, facilities and security management.

With core competencies that include management consulting, operations and maintenance, disaster preparedness and recovery and policy and procedure development, Hoey & Associates, Inc. has been providing services in the New York metropolitan area since 1995.

"It is an honor for us to assist in the opening of the NASDAQ Market for the first time in this New Year," said Hoey at the opening of the NASDAQ on the first day of 2004.

"The City of New York and the Times Square Alliance have been incredible hosts to the Armed Forces representatives celebrating here in New York City. Being here, in the Big Apple, to spend the New Year in Times Square with new found friends, will be a memory we will never forget.

On behalf of the United States Armed Forces, we would like to thank all of you for your continued support for our men and women in uniform. We would also like to thank our families and loved ones for their many sacrifices during challenging times. Here is to continued success in the New Year."
