BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A final journey has begun for those who made sacrifices for our country. The Patriot Guard Riders, from Buffalo, are bringing the remains of four veterans to their final resting place at Bath National Cemetery, in Steuben County.
The veterans’ remains were found in the basement of a former funeral home earlier this year. The Patriot Guard worked to identify them and give them a proper burial with full military honors.
"This is important to pay respect to the individuals, the men or women, who have fought or served in the military to give us our freedom. This is their just due, that they have a proper burial," Linda Hastreiter said. "Nobody gets paid to do this; it's just out of the respect for the country, and for these veterans."
The veterans buried Friday fought in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
