Chopper dedicated at Veterans Park

Nov 12, 2016

A new addition will be dedicated at the Veterans Park in Tonawanda today.

An AH-1 Cobra helicopter that saw action in the Vietnam War was unveiled at the park a few months ago, and a formal dedication ceremony will take place today. The display has been named "Remembering Vietnam." On hand for today's ceremony will be Warrant Officer Jimmie Ferguson, a resident of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Ferguson was a pilot on the gun ship while it was in active service.
