Today, the KIA Memorial March was held at Chestnut Ridge Park. We had members from The Buffalo Fire Department there to represent the fallen soldiers from the Western New York community by marching 10K, (6.3 miles) with 50lbs or so of canned goods and non-perishables in the packs on their backs which will be donated to military veterans in the Western New York area who may be going through some tough times. BFD Truck 6, 3rd platoon would like to say thank you to every participant, especially to our BFD brothers and sisters who took on the challenge today. We would also like to give a big THANK YOU to two of the members of BFD Engine 21 (FF Chris Wright and FF Patrick Herbert) which is the BFD's rig dedicated to our fallen brother, Staff Sergeant and firefighter Chris Dill who lost his life in Iraq fighting for OUR freedom! Good job boys, way to represent!
