Memorial Day 2013

As always we try to  be as active as possible when remembering our fallen on Memorial Day.  We attended three events honoring the many who gave their lives for our country.

 

 

 

 

 

Attica, NY

As part of the Arcade and Attica Railroad event Private Ball presented Taps in honor of the men and women who have sacrificed for us all.

 

Concordia Cemetery, Buffalo, NY

Lancaster, NY
