A big hurdle cleared to bringing a veteran's cemetery to our area. On Friday, Senator Schumer announced the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has completed an environmental assessment.
There are three potential sites. One is Indian Falls Road in Corfu.
Schumer says it's important to bring a veteran's cemetery in our area because the closest one is more than 75 miles away. He says so many local veterans deserve to be given a proper burial in a national site.
The final decision will be announced at a later date.
