as of right now there are 37 deployed service members who grew up in genesee county. If someone could post some photos from time to time of local events it would really cheer alot of them up including myself. Just photos of muckdog games christmas in the city just random things to remind us of what we will be returning to after our 15 month tours are up.

When I ran into the Harley-riding Border Patrol agents today, they said they were in town for a golf tournament at Terry Hills co-sponsored by the Border Patrol and that I should show up at 4 p.m. because "one of the real hereos" was going to get an award from the Border Patrol.

Mark O'Brien, from Marilla (just outside of East Aurora), served in Iraq as Marine corporal, where in service to his country, he lost an arm and a leg. O'Brien is married with a child (in the stroller, far right of the picture).

The group presented O'Brien with a $1,000 check as a token of appreciation for his service.  He received at least five standing ovations during the presentation.

I have been to hundreds of press conferences in my life and have never seen anything like this.
