Connections: Local veterans honor Gold Star families

May 29, 2017

Gold Star Family Memorial

This Memorial Day, we hear from two local veterans who served our country during the Vietnam War, and who are now serving Gold Star families in Rochester. The Gold Star Families Memorial Monument honors relatives of fallen service members. Located in White Haven Memorial Park in Pittsford, the monument was dedicated in June 2016.

We hear from Barry Culhane and John White about the effort to honor local Gold Star families, and about their experiences serving our country.
