Since September 11, 2001 over 60 Western New Yorkers have lost their lives defending the freedoms we hold dear as Americans. These men and women, members of the US Armed Forces, served our country in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
We feel that it is important that the WNY community recognize their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families and build a memorial to honor them.
Because of this the WNY Iraq/Afghanistan Memorial (WNY I AM) effort was started.
A site in the Buffalo Naval and Military Park has been secured and a design developed.
We are excited to be driving this project forward.
