A message from our friends at Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park:
“Military Honors and Non-Denominational Memorial Service at The Battle Within Foundation near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at the Buffalo Naval Park. Social distancing and masks are required.
Throughout Memorial Day weekend, 7,300 flags will blanket the grounds of the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park to represent the average number of United States Veterans who have lost their battle with PTSD per year, an average of 22 per day. From May 29-31, walk or drive by the Naval Park to see the installation.
For a $22 donation, you will receive one of the flags from our Memorial Day weekend salute along with a certificate. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Battle Within Foundation. The ongoing mission of The Battle Within Foundation is to connect Veterans with the care they need and to help with funding. Visit buffalonavalpark.org for more information.”
