Organizers of the annual Gold Star Family Honor and Remembrance Ceremony and Dinner are seeking to honor individuals who died serving the nation.
While the 2017 gathering is months away --- the evening of Sept. 30 at the University at Buffalo's Center for the Arts on the North Campus --- members of The Patriot Guardians want to get the word out that they are seeking the names of individuals who have made the ultimate sacrifice in order to pay tribute to them.
Recommendations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Kathy Weppner at 445-1066.
"We take special care telling the story of the lives of our bravest and we would like to hear from you," Weppner said. "It is the mission of The Patriot Guardians to never forget the sacrifice."
