05/29/2021

The rifle is affixed with a bayonet and inverted, signifying that the service member went down fighting. The boots signify the service member’s last march onto the battlefield. Dog tags are imprinted with the service member’s name and hung from the rifle so their identity will never be forgotten. The helmet is placed atop the rifle representing what the service member stood for and signifying that their battle is now over.

The Battlefield Cross is a sacred symbol amongst military members. Since a funeral is typically not possible during wartime, these symbols serve as a rallying point where surviving members of a unit can mourn and remember their fallen comrades.

Memorial Day is not for the veteran—Soldier, Sailor, Airmen or Marine, but for our fallen comrades. This Memorial Day, reach out to the veterans that you know and give them a simple message: “We Remember.” We remember our country’s fallen, your brothers and sisters, and we appreciate and honor their sacrifice.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Meet "COTE" We just got him this morning and cannot say thank you to our friend Jenn "Erie County Dog Control" for calling us ASAP. COTE is a 5 month old German Sheperd and will be paired up with a #Veteran in our #PawsitiveforHeroes #servicedog program. We decided to name him COTE after our dear friend "Jonathon Cote Iraq KIA" November 2006. You can follow COTE and his handler on their journey through school as they become a team.

#ArmedForcesDay is a special holiday for people all over the world to come together and thank the men and women of the #UnitedStates #ArmedForces. First conceived by President Harry S. Truman, the holiday was established in 1949. The creation of a single day celebration for all five branches of the United States #military made sense due to its recent unification under the Department of Defense. Today, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of every May, this year falling on May 15. Be sure to mark your calendar & #support our military! We here at WNYHeroes can never say thank you enough to ALL who served and continue to do so. We thank you for our #freedoms we get to enjoy #becauseofyou

We cannot say thank you enough to the #VietnamVeteran who called and donated to us this awesome scooter. The day after we received the call, this Veteran from #VVAChapter77 reached in need of a scooter. So as the tides came together, we were able to pick the chair up in #HamburgNY and make sure this hero from #RansomevilleNY received it today. Nothing we love more than taking care of #Veterans.

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.

Thank you Chrusicki bakery and WNY Heroes for the cookies to decorate. We had a lot of fun decorating them. Will enjoy them tomorrow. Go Bills!!
Know a 30 year old vet, has 3 dogs and no license at this time, looking for a place to rent.. doesn't want to give up his dogs. living on his disability.. if you know anyone let me know.. Trailer ok but would need fenced in yard and internet available.. 1 bed good.
A month ago I would barely leave my house. Carrying on a tradition that led back to well before Quarantine. The fear of having an episode triggered or a panic attack really just made it to where my life revolved around never leaving a safe space that got smaller everyday. I will admit I was afraid to have a service dog. Being responsible for another living being. The thought of being spotted or known for things that are often out of my control. It has been the exact opposite! People notice Sully and it makes me feel as though all attention is off of me. After inpatient and 10 years of counseling I had learned alot of tools to cope, but until Sully I rarely had the opportunity or will to use them. Each part of my day is different for the better. Not only am I not alone, I have a more than willing companion. The past 30 days because of the routine and training I slept better, ate more appropriately, and have been more productive. It requires discipline on both parts. The dog needs a walk I probably do too. (Even in the December and January) I have Newly formed habits that I tried for years to implement alone to no avail. I'm not 100%. I have alot more work todo but this amazing white ball of fluff has mad the road less lonely, less stressful, more purposeful and all around easier. Thank you to Everyone at WNYHEROES! I hope you enjoy seeing our journey as much as I do living it. More to come. Off to a great start. Happier and healthier Vet. Overcoming all odds. can't tell me no. Hooah!
Thank you guys so much for the holiday help! It is really awesome knowing that people haven't given up on us veterans! A big shout out to those who donated their time and items! Thank you so much! From my Family to yours! Happy Holidays!!

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.
