Fallen Heroes Memorial on display Sunday at Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WHEC) — A special memorial has made its way to Western New York to honor some of the country’s heroes.
The Fallen Heroes Memorial is now on display at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park.
The 28-foot long American flag is made up of nearly 7,000 dog tags. Each tag has the name of a person who was killed in the War on Terror from 9/11 all the way through the end of 2019.
"With the fallen, there’s a quote: ‘If you always speak their names, they’ll never be forgotten.’ We want to make sure their names aren’t forgotten, " Jason Jaskula of the K.I.A. Memorial Road March said.
The memorial will be on display in Buffalo through Sunday evening. It’s free to get in and donations are encouraged.
