Local News

On Thursday any current or retired military members can get into the New York State Fair for free, with military identification, for Armed Services Day. 

The day salutes our service men and women with a ceremony at the Veterans Memorial near the Horticulture Building at 11 a.m. 

Families can also catch a parade for the special day at 6 p.m. 

Military branches also have informative and interactive booths that they encourage families to visit. 

“The mission is sharing the Army with America’s people,” said U.S. Army Sergeant Justin Storie. “Give you a snapshot of the latest technology we’re using and interact with soldiers.” 

Anyone interested in learning more about the Army can check out their recruiting Facebook page or call the recruiting center at 315-455-6669.
