U.S. Army First Lieutenant and Buffalo native talks returning home from Afghanistan


(WIVB)– In the audience at Vice President Pence’s address at Fort Drum on Sunday was First Lieutenant and Buffalo native Lydia Gavner.

She came home from Afghanistan back on Christmas Eve.

Gavner says they were following many of the same COVID-19 prevention measures overseas and that’s helped her readjust at home.

“We quarantined at home for 2 weeks, and then just transitioning back to work, finding our place with the rest of the unit and starting fresh, it’s adjusting but it’s been good.”
