Armed Forces Week Opening Ceremonies

My daughter plays for the American Legion Band of the Tonawandas…a few weeks back I noticed she had a concert at the Buffalo Naval and Serviceman’s Park to help open Armed Forces Week in Buffalo and WNY…I had never been to the event before…well…yesterday I attended my very first…very cool stuff…I couldn’t help but to feel anything except patriotic…I am very proud of the people who choose to serve and defend our country.

One thing I was surprised with was that I had never heard of the event before, at least on the local level…it has been held in years past…I guess I was just disappointed that there wasn’t any bigger media announcement…I think an event like this could be bigger.

Here are some pics..
