Public invited to 3rd annual Veterans Day celebration in Patriots & Heroes Park | WNY Papers

The local Veteran’s Association of the 3rd Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne) of the U.S. Army National Guard, will sponsor an elaborate and patriotic Veterans Day celebration at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, inside Russell J. Salvatore’s Patriots & Heroes Park, 6675 Transit Road, Williamsville.
The third annual “Jump in on PTSD” tribute to veterans is also a fundraiser to benefit the Jack H. Wisby Jr. PTSD Treatment Center and Center for Hope at the Batavia VA Medical Center. Donations will be placed in a special “Holy Grail” and collected by members of the 19th Special Forces Group. The public is encouraged to attend the hourlong ceremony.
Russell J. Salvatore, a veteran who served in the U.S. Army in the early 1950s – and whose generosity has benefited many veteran organizations over the years – said he is excited about hosting this tribute: “We built this park on an extremely valuable Transit Road acreage to honor America’s fallen patriots and heroes. We want all veterans – and citizens – to feel at home in this park as they relax and reflect in a tranquil setting. The Veterans Day event is what the park was built for.”
