Event welcomes veterans back home

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – “Welcome home!” was the message from the VA Western New York Healthcare System to veterans. They held the 10th annual “Welcome Home” event Saturday at Buffalo’s inner harbor.

The event was open to all veterans and their families, giving them the opportunity to get tours of Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Park, including tours of the USS Little Rock. Veterans were also given the opportunity to enroll in VA health care programs, and receive information on veteran benefits.

A memorial ceremony was held with a reading of the names of local service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country during conflicts after September 11th.
