A tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice is coming to Genesee County.

More than 2,000 motorcyclists, Patriots Riders and Freedom Riders will escort The Cost of Freedom Wall from the Batavia Home Depot to Pembroke High School starting at 10 a.m. The wall lists the names of all service members who died serving our country, along with those who died during 9/11 and during the Fort Hood shootings.

More than 50,000 people are expected to visit the traveling exhibit during its four days in town. The wall is scheduled to open Thursday at 12 p.m. News10NBC has learned that paratroopers from Fort Bragg will parachute into the event.

This is the first time the exhibit is making a stop in New York.
