Search reduces possible locations for veterans cemetery

Jul 14, 2012

The location search for a new veterans cemetery has been narrowed down to three possible locations.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs has identified two locations in Corfu and one in Lancaster as possible sites. No specific date has been set for making any final decisions, but the plans for the cemetery were introduced in 2010. The site is anticipated to handle nearly 100,000 veterans and family members.

Currently, the closest veterans cemetery to the Buffalo region is more than 100 miles away in Bath, NY.
