Currently at #Cabelas gathering everything we need for our three big rabbit hunts coming up. We will be taking 18 #Veterans out on an amazing hunt. We will see everyone on Dec 12th for the big meet/greet. You will get to meet the hunt dogs and #DEC officers that will go over shooting around dogs, rabbit runs and leading. The three hunts will be followed up with one huge #BBQ for everyone after to enjoy the rabbits. All Veterans receive brand new equipment and beef jerky baskets. #OperationBoots #PeertoPeer #Support

General information

It is the vision of WNYHeroes to create a centralized resource to meet the needs of veterans and their families through collaborations with partnering community organizations. Partner organizations will provide direct support or serve as bridge organizations for physical and mental health, financial, legal and workforce development opportunities, and they will either house corporate offices on-site or provide on-site satellite offices. WNYHeroes, Inc is truly the ONE STOP SHOP of WNY and continues to do so daily. Partnering organizations are: Buffalo Sabres Foundation, Keller Chevrolet, State Police, Cote Foundation, Wilson Foundation, Try-It Distributing and many more. A board comprised of the CEOs of the partnering organizations, community business leaders and local philanthropic foundations is currently on the board of WNYHeroes to make us bigger and better. To learn more about the issues facing U.S. veterans and WNYHeroes, see the Readers Digest article entitled "How Our Government is Failing Our Veterans" online at www.rd.com.

This is me in Vietnam 1969
boot camp grad picture
Local marine corps veteran here. I have found myself desperately needing to get a tooth pulled. I am not disabled enough to get VA dental care as I am only at 70%. Anyone know of a dentist that is good and isn't gonna take me to the cleaners price wise to get this thing taken care of? Thanks in advance!
My wife Sarah R Miller is looking for some help
NaLa, a WNY Hero's, service dog and her Veteran took their first plane trip yesterday. It was a day full of firsts. First airport experience, first air planes, and first airport terminal transfer train. Thanks to her training NaLa did very well.
Thank you WNY Heroes for taking me into your #pawsitiveforheroes program, and for your never ending support.
Today we were burying my boyfriend's father. He was a Purple Heart recipient of Vietnam.
Just a friendly reminder to any of my fellow riders out there to stay safe. Ran into Lynn Marie in the wild while dropping my bike off to see if I could get it fixed after I got ran off the road on my ride this morning. Stay safe out there.

Anyone know if a place that I can get a Nu-Step donated or cheap. If you can pass this along to people in the workout business or health care business, that would be great. With my knee, hip I can not use a elliptical or bike of any kind. With shortness of breath from blood clot in lung, walking and even use of treadmill right now is out of the question. I was using Nu-Step at PF and gym at VA. They won’t be open for God know how long. Any help or suggestion is appreciated.
