1. West Seneca Vietnam Veterans Monument
Inscription. Their war asked nothing of most, But everything from the few. They stood alone to face the fight, And suffer in silence. Their courage is written in blood and pain, But their memory is etched on our hearts with love. To remember often hurts, But we will never forget. May our just and gentle God hold them, Close to his bosom. Dedication statement by Stephen T. Banko III.
