Families of fallen soldiers honored at Ilion event
ILION, N.Y. (WKTV) - There was not a dry eye in the house at the 13th annual Veterans Appreciation Day in Ilion on Saturday afternoon. A ceremony took place at the American Legion Post on North Clark Street.
This year's theme was "Veterans and Gold Star Families." These families have lost a child in either Iraq or Afghanistan.
Organizers say it is a day to recognize veterans and their loved ones who have sacrificed so much and is a tradition many hope will continue through the years.
