BUFFALO, N.Y. — As the nation celebrates its 240th year of independence, four more veterans were inducted on the Wall of Honor inside the Naval and Military Park at Canalside in Buffalo.
Brian Fitzgerald, Vito Rinaldo, Elmer Wienclawski and John Moffat were honored for their service with a name plaque on the wall with other Western New York veterans. Dozens came out to the ceremony that included a keynote address from State Senator Tim Kennedy.
“Two hundred and forty years is an extraordinary feat. It’s a feat that has only been able to have been accomplished by those individuals that put on the military uniform like the four inductees here today, others in this room and many that aren’t here with us, that have fought both at home and abroad, to protect those freedoms that were signed 240 years ago,” Kennedy said.
