The intersection of Fort and Main Streets was temporarily closed Monday morning as citizens from Buffalo, led by the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and delegates from Boys and Girls State celebrated all veterans past and present during ceremonies at the Veteran's Memorial Wall.
At their Tuesday meeting the Buffalo City Council approved a request from Police Chief Jason Carder to allow Officer Kyle Johnson to attend Immediate Action Teams (IAT) Training in South Carolina. The cost of travel, ammunition and the course is roughly $2,700 and will be covered by a Homeland Security Grant.
Today is Veteran’s Day and like many towns throughout the country, Buffalo will have their own services to honor veterans of all wars.
The parade of veterans will assemble at the corner of Fort Street and Adams Avenue at 10:45 and will then march to the Veteran’s Wall at Fort and Main Streets. The ceremonies will begin there at 11 o’clock.
