As we honor those who have given their lives for our country, and our freedoms, this Memorial Day, Western New York’s gold star families have a special place in our thoughts. A first-of-its-kind memorial is taking place along Buffalo’s waterfront, to honor every Western New Yorker who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan, especially the 71 brave local men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in these wars. Now that the necessary funds have been secured for the WNY Iraq/Afghanistan Memorial, ground breaking can begin. Dan Frontera (US Army ret.) is heading up the effort for the project, and joined Lauren on the couch for an update on this meaningful memorial.
